Wydad Casablanca said it will appeal to the FIFA Dispute Chamber to challenge the transfer of Liberian striker William Jebor to Al Foujairah’s club. The United Arab Emirates (UAE) club announced this week that it has signed the Lone Star Captain.
According to the August 19, 2019 edition of the Al Massae newspaper , Wydad considers that Jebor’s contract runs until 2021, and thus his transfer to the Emirati club is null and void. Jebor announced through his agent that Wydad, having not paid the last three salaries, this automatically gives him the right to unilaterally break the contract with his employer.
After noting Jebor’s absence, Wydad decided to contact FIFA and Al Foujairah’s club to inform them of the player’s illegal departure. The latter, however, had informed Wydad, before the African Champions League final against Esperance Tunis, of his intention to play for another club abroad. Jebor had expressed his intention to find a fair deal with Wydad, but in the deaf ear of the Casablanca club, he decided to leave suddenly for the Emirates.
Pending the verdict of the FIFA Dispute Chamber, Wydad is clinging to his rights resulting from the transfer of Jebor to Al Foujairah and can take advantage of the situation to recruit another player to strengthen his attack.
For now, the Wydad refines its preparation in Marrakech in anticipation of the new season, and this in the absence of 10 of its players who have joined the training camp of the national team of local players, while the defender Achraf Dari joined the National Olympic Team Internship.
