It has been claimed that Egyptian giants Zamalek, rivals of Pitso Mosimane's Al Ahly, could be slapped with a big ban from FIFA after reportedly duping a player out of more than $1 million (R14.6 million).
Speaking to BBC Sport in a recently published interview, 30-year-old Ghanaian forward Benjamin Acheampong claimed to have been cheated out of more than $1 million owed to him by Zamalek.
"This is not right – this is what I do to feed my family," he said.
"They can't treat people like animals. We are humans and we came here to work."
It is claimed the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has ordered the Egyptian giants to pay the player what he is owed, although he is reportedly yet to receive a single cent.

It is believed that, having arrived at the Egyptian club in 2017, Acheampong terminated his contract less than a year later, claiming that Zamalek had not paid him correctly. He was then reportedly tricked into a signing papers stating that Zamalek did not need to pay him the money they owed him.
CAS ruled in December last year that Zamalek must pay him $1.1 million (R16 million) after they found the player had "just cause" for cancelling his initial contract with the club. The Egyptian Premier League side then took the case to FIFA, insisting that they had reached an agreement with his agent that the money owed to the player was just $250 000 (R3.6 million).
FIFA, which has already opened a disciplinary case against the Egyptian club, could announce a transfer ban for the club on Thursday, and even a potential points deduction or relegation too.
Acheampong, who now represents Al-Shamal in Qatar, only played six times for Zamalek, scoring two goals.
