Transfer News: Lobi Stars Threaten To Drag Moroccan Side To FIFA Over Okpotu
The summer transfer window has seen billions of foreign currency exchange hands, but hardly will you hear this kind of story coming from Nigeria.
The Management of Lobi stars Football club of Makurdi has threatened to drag Difaa El Jadidi to FIFA over the transfer fee of striker Antony Okpotu, who joined the Moroccan side July 8, 2018.
The management, according to a statement issued by the media officer of the club, Uja Emmanuel, emphasised the fact that Okpotu had an existing contract with Lobi stars which necessitated the transfer deal between the two clubs.
The media officer disclosed that so far, management of Lobi stars is yet to collect a dime on the player's transfer deal.
He expressed the displeasure of the management over the delay by the Moroccan club to pay the transfer fee on Okpotu as was agreed upon, and urged them to honour the agreement signed with the Makurdi side, otherwise the matter would be reported to FIFA.
Uja explained that the clarification became necessary following rumours making the rounds that Okpotu's transfer fee had been received and squandered by the management.
According to Uja, such rumours are plans to distract the club by those who are not happy with the impressive performance of the Team in the NPFL .
