Kabiru Akinsola could be banned from playing football globally, if he fails to pay 300 Swiss Francs to a special account in the next nine months.
The former Nigeria junior international, is to pay the sum of 100 Swiss Francs, which is the cost of proceedings of the FIFA Disciplinary Committee.
This verdict was reached by the Committee, who investigated the player’s failure to comply with a decision passed by the Dispute Resolution Chamber Single Judge of the FIFA Players’ Status Committee on January 17, 2014.
It was an employment-related dispute between Etoile Sportive du Sahel and Akinsola.
The document signed by Alejandra Salmeron Garcia, stated that “the player Kabiru Akinsola Olanrewaju is granted a final period of grace of 9 months as from notification of the present decision in which to settle his debt to the creditor, the club Etoile Sportive du Sahel.
“If the payment is not made by this deadline, the creditor may demand in writing from the secretariat to the FIFA Disciplinary Committee than a ban on any football –related activity be imposed on the player, Kabiru Akinsola Olanrewaju, for a period of three months. Once the creditor has filed this request, the ban on taking part in any kind of football-related activity will be imposed automatically without a further formal decision having to be taken by the FIFA Disciplinary Committee.” However, the ban would be lifted once the payment has been made.
