Egyptian club Ismailly send appeal to CAS over settlement of Ghanaian striker John Antwi to Dreams FC

Egytian club Ismaily have sent an appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport to overturn a percentage settlement to Ghanaian club Dreams FC over the transfer of John Antwi.

Ismailly received $1.5m following the transfer of John Antwi to Al Shabab and were supposed to make a percentage settlement to Dreams FC which they failed.

FIFA then ordered Ismaily to settle all outstanding debt owed Dreams FC over the transfer of striker, John Antwi by or face sporting sanctions.

This follows Ismaily’s reluctance to pay Dreams FC the transfer fee and its share of training compensation following the transfer of John Antwi to Al Shabab of Saudi Arabia in 2016.

The sanctions included points deductions and a suspension of the Egyptian Football Association from all CAF and FIFA sanctioned games if Ismaily fails to pay by the May 23rd date.

John Antwi moved to Ismaily in 2013 and won the Egyptian top-flight goal-king award in the 2014/15 season.

The Egyptian club were ordered to make this payment by the FIFA Disciplinary Committee earlier this year.

He was later transferred to Saudi Arabian club Al Shabab in a deal reported to be in excess of $1.5m of which Ismaily have refused to pay portions belonging to Dreams FC.
