Fifa has confirmed that Egyptian side Zamalek have been ordered to pay their former coach Carlos Alberto Cabral US$148,000 for breach of contract.

The Brazilian was sacked last year after just five months into his 18-month contract.

Cabral said he was unfairly dismissed and reported the issue to Fifa, who ruled in his favour in April.

Zamalek subsequently appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (Cas) for the decision to be reviewed but the Switzerland-based organisation upheld Fifa's ruling.

"Cas has upheld the original decision taken by Fifa to fine Zamalek for US$148,000," a Fifa spokesman told BBC Sport on Friday.

The Egyptian side are expected to pay the fine by next month.

It was Cabral's second spell in charge, after leading Zamalek to the 2002 African Champions League title and the Super Cup.
