El Hadary ban confirmed by CAS but fine reduced

Essam el Hadary
Essam el Hadary faces a four month ban from football

The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has ruled that Egyptian goalkeeper Essam El Hadary will have to serve a four-month ban.

CAS has also ruled that his former club, the Egyptian giants Al Ahly, are owed more than $750 000 compensation.

The ruling ends a long-running case sparked by El Hadary's controversial transfer to Swiss side FC Sion.

He left Ahly suddenly in the middle of 2008 to join Sion, with the Cairo club claiming he had breached his contract.

Ahly had taken their claim to football's world governing body Fifa, who found in their favour - but FC Sion and the player appealed to CAS.

El Hadary now plays for Ahly's Egyptian rivals Ismaili and his ban will be imposed from the beginning of the next domestic season.

Both the player and his former club are jointly liable for the financial compensation due to Al Ahly.
