Zamalek’s Tunisian fullback Hamdi Nagguez has terminated his contract with his team after winning a lawsuit against the management over his delayed fees, the player's lawyer Anis bin Mime announced on Monday.
"Hamdi Nagguez terminated his contract with Zamalek club and he is now a free agent who has the right to join any team," Anis bin Mime announced via his twitter account early on Monday.
"We also lodged a complaint to FIFA asking for the player's delayed fees from Zamalek."
The Tunisian fullback lawyer confirmed that his client sent a formal letter to Zamalek asking for his delayed fees, but the Egyptian club's management ignored the player’s request, so he decided to inform FIFA about his case and terminated his contract with the team.
Nagguez also wrote on his Instagram account that he terminated his contract with Zamalek because the club did not pay his financial dues for over two months, thanking the team's fans and wishing his teammates good luck.
The Cairo giants Zamalek signed Nagguez on a three-and-a-half-year contract durin the summer transfer window of 2018 season coming from Etoile du Sahel.
After losing to TP Mazembe, Zamalek chairman Mortada Mansour announced that he would not pay the players' dues until the team returns to winning ways.
Zamalek are suffering a poor run in the Egyptian Premier League and the African Champions League, as the team recently lost 3-0 to TP Mazembe of DR Congo away from home in the first round of the group stage after losing to struggling side Enppi 2-1 in the domestic league.
