Rangers will pocket only 30 000 Euros from Ighodaro's transfer

27 June 2015, 14:45Soccer Laduma

Lagos - News24.com has been told that Enugu Rangers are not entitled to 100 percent of the transfer fee following Osaguona Ighodaro's move to Raja Casablanca.

In the January transfer window, the Coal City outfit struck a deal worth 150 000 Euros for the Nigeria international to join the Moroccan club on a four - year contract.

It has now emerged that Rangers did not hold Osaguona Ighodaro's economic rights prior to his transfer to Raja Casablanca but the player in his own wisdom agreed to give the club 20 percent of the transfer fee still being expected from Raja.

The agreement between the attacker's representatives and Enugu Rangers was put down in black and white, and per the Memorandum of Understanding signed, the club will be paid €30,000.

Osaguona Ighodaro has decided to pay his advisers a net figure of €15,000 while he pockets the remaining €105,000 (equivalent of =N=23.3 million in Nigerian currency).

What does Enugu Rangers stand to gain? They would share in the future sale of Ighodaro, having inserted a 25 percent sell - on clause into the contract he penned with Raja.

Most importantly, Raja Casablanca have defaulted on the payment that was supposed to made in three tranches and the player has already engaged a sports lawyer to fight his cause.
