Former Zamalek striker Benjamin Acheampong received a three year jail sentence after he failed to pay his agent.

The Ghanaian’s stay at Zamalek was cut short when his contract was terminated after he failed to score on his return from a loan stint with Petrojet.

Acheampong’s former representative Abdelrahman Mohamed El-Khabarawy filed a law suit for unpaid commission for facilitating Acheampong’s move to Zamalek back in 2017.

El-Kharabawy and Acheampong had agreed on a transfer fee of 400 000 Egyptian pound (R332,263) for which the striker failed to pay.

Acheampong, who now plays for Al-Shamal in Qatar was sentenced to three years in jail for not paying the fee and for failing to appear in court.
