Agogo hit with suspension

Ghana striker Junior Agogo will sit out of three league games for Zamalek after he was handed a three-match ban by the Egyptian Football Association for an obscene gesture he insist he did not make.

The ban also attracted a $4 000 dollar fine.

Agogo, who joined Zamalek at the beginning of the season has been given the punishment for allegedly gesturing impolitely towards fans of Petrojet during an Egyptian League game last Friday.

Though the match referee did not report the incident, the Egyptian Football Association used video evidence to hand down punishment to the player.

It is sure to add to his growing frustration in Egypt after a move that has clearly not gone as he anticipated.

The striker has denied he made the gesture telling that: “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.”

“They clearly saw a different thing.”
