FIFA has ordered Moroccan club Wydad Athletic Club – WAC to pay Liberian striker William Jebor a sum of US$829,000 for unfair termination of his 3 year contract back in 2018FIFA ruled in favor of William Jebor in its dispute with Wydad in Casablanca, relating to a financial dispute.
According to our sources, the Liberia captain would not have received his monthly salary of 15,000 dollars for eight months, which is a loss of 120,000 dollars (1,160,000 dirhams) Information contradicted by the management of the WAC, who claims to have paid the player cash.
Jebor had also seized FIFA for the non-payment of his rent, which in principle had to be borne by Wydad, a commitment that the club apparently never respected.
Faced with this situation, the striker left the WAC this summer to join Al Fujeirah in the United Arab Emirates, but saw his transfer blocked by the Casablanca club because he is under contract until 2021.Finally, FIFA decided to agree with the complainant by allowing him to join the UAE league for one season.
