Vietnamese Club To Report Kalu Uche To FIFA
Posted: Apr 22, 2012
Vietnamese Club V.Ninh Binh have threatened to report the Nigeria international and Espanyol forward Kalu Uche to world’s football governing body, Fifa over his failure to refund money he collected in 2011 as sign on bonus from the club
It would be recalled that following Almeria’s relegation from the Premier Division at the end of last season, Kalu Uche did not want to play in Spain’s second tier, and was desperately in search of a new team.
The most concrete interest for Kalu’s services was from a team in Asia, V.Ninh Binh. The Vietnamese club were even willing to match Almeria’s 100 billion Vietnam dong (3.5 million euros) valuation of Kalu Uche.
Kalu Uche and his agent, Jose Rodriguez Baster received advance payment from V.Ninh Binh which they failed to return when the proposed transfer met a brick-wall.
‘’Uche and Jose Rodriguez Baster representatives (the company Promosport BCN, Barcelona, Spain) had received an amount of money from us. If Uche had signed the contract, V.Ninh Binh would have said nothing about it. But when the contract was not signed Uche should have refunded the money to us.
‘’Currently, the club has nearly completed records to send to FIFA demanding repayment of the money from Uche. We have all papers showing that Uche had collected money from the club. If Uche does not pay the money, V.Ninh Binh will work to make sure he can not compete at international tournaments in the future,’’Executive Director Pham Van Le told thanhnien.com.vn.
Should V.Ninh Binh carry out its threat of reporting Kalu Uche to Fifa, his availability for Nigeria’s three games against Rwanda, Malawi and Namibia in June remains a mystery.
