COOREMAN GIVES KADUNA UTD ULTIMATUM
If the management of Kaduna United fails to pay coach MauriceCooreman all his financial entitlements for the just concluded football season by the end of this week, the Belgian tactician may be compelled to drag his employers to the World football governing body, FIFA as a last resort to get paid.
League Unlimited scooped that Cooreman has not been paid a dime out of his sign-on fee for the season and is being owed an accumulated nine months salary. The former Enyimba of Aba gaffer whose contract with Kaduna United expired on November 5, we further gathered, has written to his employers, Kaduna State Sports Commission through his lawyer demanding the payment of all his financial entitlements before the end of this week.
Cooreman who confirmed the development explained that he took the latest step after several failed promises by his employers.
'Yes, I have written to the Kaduna State Sports Commission through my lawyer giving them up till the end of this weekend to pay me my sigh-on fees and nine months salaries. I have been working under difficult conditions with several failed promises' he lamented.
Meanwhile, we learnt that Cooreman has rejected overtures from a board member of Kaduna United to get him extend his contract by two years arguing that he be paid his outstanding entitlements before he could go into fresh negotiation.
