Wikki To Drag Bosso Before Arbitration Panel

The management of Wikki Tourist may institute a case of breach of contract against troubled coach, Ladan Bosso, for leaving his duty post without a formal approach, understands.
After spending about six seasons at Wikki Tourist without winning a trophy, Bosso reportedly completed a switch to neighbouring club, Niger Tornadoes, over the weekend.
The move of the 43-year-old coach has irked the top hierarchy of the Wikki Tourist management and it may soon be filing a case against the former Nigerian Under-20 head coach.
Chairman of the Bauchi-based club, Patrick Pascal, though did not categorically say that Wikki Tourist would head to the court of the Nigeria Premier League (NPL), he was clear on the fact that Bosso was still contracted to his club.
Pascal also disclosed that for a coach of Bosso’s calibre, who has handled one of the national team and undergone international exposure, he would have known that he cannot sign any deal with any other club since he did not formally resign at Wikki Tourist.
But the club chief does not want to draw distraction to his side’s campaign in the ongoing season by concentrating on Bosso’s action leading to his leaving the club.
“We are a club with honour. He has leveled some allegations against us and that is unprofessional of a coach, who has been the longest-serving of any Premier League coach. He has been with us for more than five or six seasons and did not win anything and yet we accommodate him with a lot of patience. I can tell you that he did not resign from his position as coach of the club and that means he is still in contract with us.
“But we will be looking into that later because we have the task of doing well in the league this season and Bosso’s behaviour should not serve as a distraction to the ambition of the club this season,” he told
In his own response, Bosso laughed off the threat of being dragged before the arbitration committee of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) and warned of the consequences.
The former Wikki Tourist coach made it clear that the management of the Bauchi club should pay him his outstanding wages and other fees before talking of dragging him to the court of Nigerian football.
“Really I will not want to exchange words here. The only thing I want from them (Wikki Tourist) is for them to pay me my money they are owe me,” he said.
