Officials of the League Management Company, LMC, will be in Nnewi tomorrow to verify claims by players of FC Ifeanyiubah that they have not been paid five months’ salaries by the club, Scorenigeria.com reports.
The players had petitioned the domestic football league organisers through their solicitor earlier in the month over their alleged unpaid salaries.
LMC on Friday, October 20 in a letter signed by the Chief Operating Officer, Salihu Abubakar, informed the players through their solicitor that they will be at the Nnobi Road, Nnewi office of the club on Monday to verify their claims.
This followed counter claims by the club that they are not indebted to the players.
Following the players petition, LMC wrote to the hierarchy of the club conveying the players claim, leading the decision for an on-the-spot verification which it has slated for Monday.
“All the affected players are hereby directed to be present at the venue for the verification exercise”, LMC said in the letter.
The rules are clear that players owed as much as three months’ salary can terminate their contracts and walk away as free players.
