When Chippa United fighting relegation zone Nigerian attacker caused a significant wound to the club

Fifa suspends Chippa United because of Nigerian forward Kwem.

After failing to pay the player's sign-on fee, the South African team was taken to the Zurich-based authority.

Chippa United of the Premier Soccer League has been sanctioned by Fifa for failing to pay the sign-on fee for Nigerian attacker Augustine Kwem.

Kwem, 24, filed a complaint with the world governing body after the Chilli Boys failed to pay his R200,000 signing-on fee.

The decision was made after the club failed to pay the money as requested, according to a letter sent to the club by Fifa's disciplinary coordinator, Pablo Primo.

We observe that the creditor notifies us in its email that the respondent, the club, Chippa United FC

According to KickOff, "has not met with its financial commitments in accordance with Fifa's ruling."

"In this regard, we wish to inform the parties that Fifa has enforced an international restriction on the registration of new players as of today [May 4]."

Furthermore, the respondent's member association is urged to immediately impose a suspension on the respondent's club, Chippa United FC, from registering new players at the national level, in compliance with the aforementioned judgment.

They had to denounce the club to Fifa, according to Kwem's agent, Johhny Ogbah, because they failed to pay the money as agreed.

The club's owner, Simon [Siviwe Mpengesi], pledged to pay in three installments but has only made two. According to iDiski Times, Ogbah told the SAFM Radio show that the deadline for the third installment had gone a long time ago.

"The player, on the other hand, adores the club and has a positive relationship with the management, so he waited, but the money never arrived.

The first and second installments were likewise late.

As a result, the player now tells me to approach Fifa.

"Before returning to Fifa, I spoke with Simon again, and he promised to pay the money on a specified date, but no money has arrived.

So we reasoned that if we went to Fifa, they would pay.

Ogbah underlined that such a punishment is not Kwem's or his desire for the Gqeberha-based team.

We see this all the time in football, but the player doesn't want the club to suffer, and neither do I, so all they have to do is pay "he said finally. "If they pay today, we will notify Fifa and the suspension would be lifted immediately.

Kwem worked at Chippa for two years before joining TS Galaxy.
