The International Sports Court rejected the appeal submitted by the Tunisian football club Etoile du Sahel and the Ivorian player Souleymane Coulibaly, a former player of the Egyptian Al-Ahly club, against the “Red Genie”.
The court upheld the decision issued by the International Football Association “FIFA” to compel the Sahel club and the player Coulibaly, to pay one million and 400,000 dollars to Al-Ahly Club, in addition to secondary fines of 15%, as of October 2019, while obliging the Tunisian club Etoile Sahel to pay the litigation fees.
It is noteworthy that the Ivorian Soleimani Coulibaly fled from Al-Ahly earlier, despite the continuation of his contract with the club, with incorrect allegations.
According to the Al-Ahly club’s statement, which was published on the official website, the club’s management has taken all legal measures to preserve its rights, and the Sports Court upheld the ruling issued by the International Federation in favor of Al-Ahly.
Al-Ahly resumed its training today, Thursday, in preparation for its match against the other Tunisian team, Esperance, scheduled for June 19, in the first leg of the semi-finals of the African Champions League.
The team conducted a medical swab this afternoon, before the start of the training, which will be held at the “Touch” stadium on the island.
