FIFA Order Al-Ittihad To Pay Ghana’s Muntari $5m

By on September 27, 2017

FIFA have ordered Saudi Arabia Club Ittihad Jeddah to pay Ghana midfielder Sulley Muntari an amount of SAR 20 million (US$5,333,049).

Muntari dragged the Saudi Pro League giants to the Federations of International Football after the Club had failed to pay his wages and bonuses during his time at the Club.

The Ghanaian international joined the Saudi Club as a free agent after leaving Italian Club AC Milan.

Checks reveal the player had not received any salary since joining the Club, however Ittihad Jeddah failed to pay him off upon ending his contract, a situation which forced the former Inter-Milan man to report the case to the World football governing body.

Ittihad Jeddah have only 14 working days to pay the said amount to the midfielder who is currently unattached.

The 33-year-old left Italian Club Pescara at the end of the 2016/17 season.

The former Portsmouth man would be seeking to land himself a Club in the January transfer window.
