Zamalek striker Ahmed Hossam "Mido" has announced that he is considering leaving the Cairo-based club because, to-date, he hasn't received his dues.

"The club’s Chairman Mamdouh Abbass kicked me out of his office when I demanded my payments. I have all the right to sue him now," the 29-year-old forward said to Egyptian channel, Dream TV, on Sunday.

"I don’t deserve to be treated that way and this doesn’t happen in any good club, so I decided to leave Zamalek," the former Ajax Amsterdam player asserted.

The nomadic striker, who played for English sides, West Ham United, Wigan Athletic, Middlesbrough and Tottenham Hotspur, was reportedly linked with a move to the Premier League, but no details have yet been revealed.

"I will continue with Zamalek if I receive my salary this week," Mido insisted.

Amid a financial crisis that all Egyptian clubs are experiencing since the suspension of domestic football competitions, White Castle owes Mido LE 4.7 million ($790,000).
