Guy Roger Toindouba Cancels Contract With Adana Demirspor, Nigerian Players Warned Nigerian players flocking to greener pastures in Turkey better beware of the antics of some Turkish clubs who for reasons best known to them refuse to meet their contractual obligations, thus leaving the players in limbo.

This warning was given exclusively to by foremost Nigerian sports lawyer, Barrister Johnny Precious Ogbah.

According to the lawyer who is the Head, Sports Law Africa of UK based Activity Chambers, his office recently terminated the contract of one of their clients, Camerounian born Guy Roger Toindouba with Turkish First Division Club Adana Demirspor for their refusal to pay the player his salary from February till date.

" These clubs promise Heaven and earth to players and once they sign them they refuse to pay them their salaries.

'' Guy Roger signed for Adana in Febraury this year from Norwegian club Lillestroem BK.

'' However, from February when he joined the club till date he has not received a dime as salary.

'' He is still owed about $50, 000 of his sign on fee. Despite all our entreaties to Adana to meet up their contractual obligations they refused, and thus after several warnings we had no option than to terminate the contract with just cause.

FIFA Regulations for the status and transfer of players allows a player to terminate his contract if he has not been paid salary for 3 months and upwards.Adana owe our client 6 months salary and didn't seem likely to comply hence we decided to terminate the contract.

The player was wise enough to contact us through his agent, and we swung into immediate action.

"We shall immediately go to FIFA to get a provisional clearance for the young man to continue his contract in another better club, and also claim for h salary up till the end of his contract and we are certain of getting a favorable verdict from FIFA.

'' Scottish star Kris Boyd won almost £2.5m in owed and outstanding wages plus damages within a year from FIFA and we are certain of a similar verdict in our matter because the cases are similar: both Turkish clubs refused to pay their players' wages and the players sued.

'' In a few days time we shall be granted a provisional clearance by FIFA, and in a matter of months we shall win atleast 500, 000 euros in our case against them, "concluded Barrister Johnny
