Enugu Rangers have set a deadline for Moroccan club Raja Casablanca to pay up the 150,000 Euros transfer fee of Ighodaro Osaguona, or risk losing the striker. Osaguona has hit the ground running since he joined the Moroccan side last December with his goals helping them in the CAF Champions League and the domestic league.
He has scored two goals in the Botola Pro League and three in the Caf Champions League in a total of nine matches for Raja so far.
Rangers’ Director of Media and Publicity, Foster Chime told Goal that they are very surprised that Raja defaulted on the agreement reached between both clubs to pay the asking price on the striker and won’t hesitate reporting the case to FIFA.
He said Raja agreed to pay the money in three instalments but Rangers are yet to get a dime.
“We have written to Raja and have also copied [the] Morocco FA and CAF that they have till the end of next week to pay the transfer fees of Ighodaro Christian Osaguona. We will take it to further lengths by going to FIFA if they do not comply with our latest ultimatum,” Chime told Goal.
“We are a peace loving club but Raja are taking that for granted. We released Osaguona to them since December last year and by the arrangement on how the cash is to be received, we ought to have received everything by the end of last month. Till date we are yet to get anything at all. It is after we have explored all possibilities and there is no headway that we will ask for his recall because they have reneged on the agreement reached with them.”
Osaguona scored 16 league goals for Rangers in the 2013/2014 Nigeria Professional Football League season.
