Egyptian football heavyweights Zamalek have filed an appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) against FIFA's Dispute Resolution Chamber for the decision that the team must pay 1.2 million euros to their former Ghanaian striker Junior Agogo.

The Whites were ordered to pay the fine over his unpaid salaries.

"The Court of Arbitration for Sport has decided to suspend FIFA's decision concerning Agogo's case after we filed an appeal to them yesterday," the club's legal councilor Nasr Eddine Azam said on the club's official website on Thursday.

 The White Knights signed Agogo from English club Nottingham Forest in the summer of 2008 for 750,000 sterling pounds. He was set to receive 1.5 million euros during the duration of his three-year contract.

However, he terminated his contract with Zamalek several months later after the club failed to fulfill their obligations toward him.

The Ghanaian striker lodged a complaint with FIFA, demanding compensation for his unpaid dues.

"We are now preparing a new file and we hired a Spanish attorney to follow the case in front of the CAS," Azzam said.
