In the next few hours, the Al-Ahly administration will start addressing the International Football Association (FIFA) to complain against the Tunisian coastal star for not paying the fine imposed on him by the Court of Arbitration for Sport by paying one million and 400 thousand, which was his position on the Ivorian Soleimani Coulibaly due to the unilateral termination of his contract with the Red Castle.
A source, who declined to be named, said in exclusive statements to Leelakora, that the International Sports Court had upheld the fine ruling on Etoile du Sahel and the player earlier, and gave them a 45-day opportunity to pay the full dues to Al-Ahly and submit an acknowledgment to end the crisis.
He added, “The deadline ends today, July 30, so Al-Ahly will start making moves, the first of which is to file a complaint with the International Sports Court that ES Sahel and the player will not pay the fine, as well as another complaint to the Confederation of African Football.”
And he continued: “Al-Ahly agreed to Etoile du Sahel’s request to pay the amount in installments, but there was no obligation to pay those installments. Al-Ahly officials are taking normal measures to protect their rights, and this does not conflict with their good relationship with Tunisian clubs in general, whether Esperance, Sfaxien, Etoile du Sahel and others.”
And he concluded: “The Sports Court decided to compel ES Sahel to pay a fine of 15% of the original amount for the delay in payment throughout that period.”
