The Federation of International Football Association (FIFA) has ordered Egyptian club SC Smuoha to pay the sum of $70,000 to Super Eagles forward, Junior Ajayi within 15 days.
The Super Eagles had dragged his Egyptian Premier League club SC Smouha to the World Soccer ruling body ( FIFA) after neglecting him following injury he sustained during a friendly match.
Ajayi was a household name in the Egyptian Premier League after a successful spell with giants Al Ahly leading them to several trophies both in the domestic and continental scene.
He joined Smouha last summer after a short stint with the Libya club Al Khader.
Ajayi sustained an injury in October 2022 during a friendly game and he has been abandoned by the management of Smouha.
Angered by the non-challant attitude of the club, the Nigeria International decided to drag the club to FIFA after being owed backlogs of salaries totalling ($70,000) and the football body has instructed Smouha to pay him within 15 days.
