Trouble looms for the NPFL side, Plateau United as World Football Governing Body, FIFA is set to stop the Jos based team from registering new players ahead of the forthcoming CAF Champions League over their conduct.
Recall that at the start of last season, both Samuel Mathias and Alex Aghahowa signed two years deal with the Jos team and both players were placed on the clubs' payroll on official contracts. Shockingly, at the end of their first season at the club, Plateau United terminated the contract of both players, with one year left on their deals. This according to FIFA, is a breach of contractual agreement.
According to one of the players, he said "I played over 20 matches for the club in the concluded season, I simply can't understand the rationale behind terminating my contract. That is why we have decided to table this matter before FIFA via our legal representatives.
“I know I have an existing contract with the club and that means I remain a player of the club", the player concluded.
According to Article 4 of FIFA Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players, clubs who breach existing contracts will be hammered with a transfer ban to register new players and a wholesome fine.
According to inside sources, Plateau United will be given an ultimatum to pay up the players their salaries left or face the hammer of FIFA.
