A Nigerian football player in Slovenia says he was fired by his club — six months after he joined — for impregnating the daughter of the president of the club.
The player (name withheld) told a Ghanaian media outfit that he is responsible for the conception.
“I signed a three year deal with the option of another year but last month I ran into trouble when my girlfriend who happens to be the daughter of the president said she was pregnant for me,” the footballer said while narrating the experience.
“The club got to know about it and summoned me for a meeting. I got there and admitted that I am responsible for the pregnancy. And I was told to stay at home and not to be seen around the club premises until I am instructed to return.
“A week later, I was called to the office and told that my agent has been informed about their plans to terminate my contract for gross misconduct and indiscipline. The news came to me as a surprise because I have not been found wanting in any area since I arrived at the club six months ago.”
Four Nigerians namely Temitope Nelson, Gerald Chiyoke, Bede Osuji, and Sulaiman Adedoja, have contracts with second-tier clubs in Slovenia.
Speaking further, the player, who is reported to have returned to Nigeria, argued that the woman involved is an adult with whom he chose to have a child and added that he has been advised to file a case with FIFA.
“My agent called me up and said we should file a case with FIFA that he has a recording of the president saying my contract was terminated for having an affair with his daughter. She’s an adult for God’s sake, we both love each other and decided to have a child,” he explained.
“They have forced her to block me on all social media platforms. The few friends I made at the club are also scared of speaking to me about her. I’m confused right now. Now I don’t know what will happen to her and the child since I’m back in Nigeria.”
