					Zamalek protest Agogo ban

ZAMALEK CLAIM AGOGO IS INNOCENT Zamalek have officially requested the Egyptian Football Association (EFA) to reconsider the suspension imposed on Black Stars striker Junior Agogo.


EFA decided to suspend Agogo for three league games plus a fine of EGP20,000 after the player's improper gestures during Zamalek's goalless draw against Petrojet on 14 November.

The Whites' football director Ahmed Refaat told that the club will appeal against the ban, adding that the fine plus suspension decision was a bit harsh compared to Agogo's misconduct.

"Many coaches and players show worse attitudes towards officials and opponents, none of them receive such a heavy ban," said Refaat.

Scoring just twice in the league so far, the 29-year-old Agogo failed to establish himself as a Zamalek star since joining the club from English side Nottingham Forest in the summer.
