					Junior Agogo banned in Egypt

Agogo has been banned for three matches Ghana striker Junior Agogo has been banned for three matches by the Egypt Football Association (EFA) for making a rude gesture to fans.

The Zamalek forward has also been fined been US$4,000 for the incident that occurred during Friday's league game at league leaders Petrojet.


Agogo was caught by TV cameras while gesturing impolitely towards the opponents, but referee Mohamed Farouk didn't comment on the incident in his report.


Even though the referee failed to report the incident, the EFA used video evidence to hand down the punishment to the Ghanaian striker.


Agogo has denied he gestured rudely towards the fans despite the video evidence used before the ruling.


"They will realise if they watch they watch the video that I was merely joking with my teammates and we were having a laugh. I don't know where I made an obscene gesture to the fans," Agogo said before the ruling.


"There have been difficult times with opposition fans but the last thing I will do is to get into the habit of making obscene gestures. It's just not like me."

Agogo has been a huge disappointment since his summer move to the Whites.


The former Nottingham Forest man failed to live up to expectation as he managed to score just twice in his many games for Zamalek so far in the season.
