The Spanish Football Players Union are taking Kelechi Nwakali’s club, SD Huesca to court over wrongful dismissal.
The 23-year-old contract was set to run out in few months time but the club decided to terminate the deal on Tuesday, putting out a statement that he is not longer contractually binded to them.
After communicating the Huesca Sports Society, this past Tuesday, April 5, the end of the contractual relationship that it had with the soccer player Kelechi Nwakali, the Spanish Soccer Players Association wants to state the following:
The D. Huesca notified the footballer that a disciplinary file was being opened on February 4, 2022 due to alleged events that have led to the club’s unilateral decision to fire the player.
As soon as the enormous defenselessness that this situation was causing in the affected person became known, he made himself available to Kelechi Nwakali, advising him and defending his legitimate interests.
Given the numerous information that is appearing, some erroneous, AFE wants to clarify that the dismissal will be challenged -as it cannot be otherwise- before the courts of the city of Huesca with the aim of continuing to safeguard the labor rights of the soccer player.
AFE understands that, with this unilateral resolution adopted by the club, the labor rights of Kelechi Nwakali have been clearly violated.
