CAIRO: Zamalek presidential candidate Al-Mandouh Al-Hosseini has officially opposed the club s signing of Ghanaian striker Junior Agogo.

Al-Hosseini sent an official letter to the Egyptian Higher Council for Sports (HCS) asking them to annul the contract with the Nottingham Forrest player.

Al-Hosseini told Dream Sports channel that Agogo s signing is nothing but a publicity stunt to boost the chances of current Zamalek chairman Mamdouh Abbas in getting reelected this summer.

The HCS had previously issued a statement that said that no deals should be completed without their approval in the transitional period that precedes club elections.

Agogo has signed a three-year-deal with Zamalek.

Al-Hosseini has accused Abbas of using his post to improve his chances of getting reelected while other presidential hopefuls aren t even allowed to hold seminars inside the club.

Zamalek s elections are set to be held on July 27.
