Kenya international Clifton Miheso has alleged that he was forced to cancel his contract with Golden Arrows at gunpoint by two men during a meeting with the club.
NAIJ.com gathered that the footballer has already filed a complaint to FIFA as well as the World Players’ Union FIFPro.
The incident allegedly happened earlier this year at the club’s offices at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban, South Africa.
Miheso's lawyer have asked FIFA to hand the club a transfer ban and ask the side to return $22 000 in unpaid wages.
“Clifton Miheso’s lawyer has filed a complaint to Fifa after the footballer was pressured by two men carrying guns to terminate his contract with South African club Golden Arrows,” reads the statement on Fifpro’s website.
“The armed men arrived in the club’s offices where he was meeting with the chief executive and pressured him into signing a document rescinding his contract."
According to the player's lawyers, the club failed to provide any satisfactory information about the incident.
The 24-year-old Miheso has scored five goals in 14 appearances for Kenya.
