New Twist: Mayuka stays at ZamalekBy Nelson Kazeze on 31 Jan 2017
2012 AFCON Golden Boot winner Emmanuel Mayuka’s woes at Egyptian club Zamalek have taken a new twist with the club confirming that the striker will stay at the club.
This was after the player and his agent met cub president Mortada Mansour yesterday.
The club, which initially wanted the Zambian striker out for allegedly being AWOL, are understood to have failed to meet their financial obligations after the misunderstanding with the player.
The player’s close ally, who sought anonymity, said Zamalek had no money to pay the player for the termination of the contract and that they were forced to rescind their decision.
“They [Zamalek] wanted him out but had a challenge because they could not settle the amount of huge money that would come as a consequence of terminating his contract signed a five-year contract and is one of the highest paid. So, the burden was too big for them they had to find a solution which was to keep him,” said the source.
Reports indicted that the Zambian was on the verge of making a move to Russian Premier League side Zenit St Petersburg but his agent and Zamalek could not agree on mutual terms of letting Mayuka leave the Egyptian club a year after joining and signing a five-year deal.
Mayuka has failed to find his feet at the Egyptian club which has seen him warm the bench for the club.
Mayuka has since joined his teammates today as they prepare for the Egyptian Super Cup against Al Ahly to be played next month.
