A Nigerian soccer player has been fired by a Slovenian club for impregnating the daughter of the president of the second division team according to reports.
ghanasoccernet.com reports that the player, whose name has been withheld, was axed after just six months with the club.
“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”.
Four Nigerian players are registered in the Slovenian second division, namely Bede Osuji, Temitope Nelson, Gerald Chiyoke and Sulaiman Adedoja.
The player said he is considering the legal route.
“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’s 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.”
