Nigeria international Ogenyi Onazi is fighting tooth and nail to receive his salary from his former club, Lazio. The Super Eagles midfielder alleged that the serie A side owe him two months’ salary, specifically May and June and has asked FIFA to wade into the issue.
The 23-year-old midfielder who spent five seasons at the club made 110 appearances and scored seven goals before his move to Turkish club, Trabzonspor.
He told BBC Sport, “We have no option but to go to FIFA to ask the disciplinary committee to act on Lazio’s refusal to pay me. My agent and lawyer have written to Lazio, but after two months we have heard nothing from the club. We all conclude that the only ideal thing to do is to approach FIFA to enable me to get what I worked for.”
