Zamalek club failed for the second time to include Ivorian midfielder Serge Aka, midfielder, in the Egyptian team El Gouna, due to the player’s request for an increase in his annual salary, which the club refused.
Zamalek and Siraj Akka
And Egyptian reports indicated that the Ivorian player Siraj Aka had asked to receive one million and 200 thousand dollars annually as an annual salary, but the Zamalek administration refused this and stopped for the second time the progress of negotiations to include the player, considering the amount requested from the latter was exaggerated.
The Ivorian player Aka was one of the most prominent candidates by the Egyptian Zamalek administration to join him during the last period, in order to compensate for the departure of Tunisian midfielder Ferjani Sassi, who announced his departure from the Egyptian White Castle.
