One of four Nigerian players plying their trade in the Slovenia second division has been sacked for impregnating the daughter of his club president.
Bede Osuji, Temitope Nelson, Gerald Chiyoke and Sulaiman Adedoja are the four Nigerian playing in the second division league in Slovenia.
With the particular player yet to be identified and name of club withheld, one can only guess who among the four is the victim.
The player has since returned to Nigeria after just six months of his three-year contract with the club.
Narrating his ordeal, the player said “I signed a three year deal with the option of another year but last month I ran into trouble when my girlfriend who happens to be the daughter of the president said she was pregnant for me”, he said.
“The club got to know about it and summoned me for a meeting. I got there and admitted that I am responsible for the pregnancy and I was told to stay at home and not to be seen around the club premises until I am instructed to return.
“A week later I was called to the office and told that my agent has been informed about their plans to terminate my contract for gross misconduct and indiscipline. The news came to me as a surprise because I have not been found wanting in any area since I arrived at the club six months ago.”
The Nigerian player says he is considering legal action at FIFA over the claims of the club that he went beyond the boundary set for players of the club.
“My agent called me up and said we should file a case with FIFA that he has a recording of the president saying my contract was terminated for having an affair with his daughter. She’s an adult for God sake, we both love each other and decided to have a child.
“Now I don’t know what will happen to her and the child since I’m back in Nigeria. They have forced her to block me on all social media platforms so we have not been communicating. The few friends I made at the club are also scared of speaking to me about her apparently they don’t want to run into trouble with the team. I’m confused right now,” he concluded.
