Breaking: Sacked Algerian Footballer Retained, Deducted 2 Months’ Salary
Breaking: Salim Boukhanchouche, initially sacked for indiscipline, has been retained by Algerian Club JSK Kabylie.
Algerian Club JSK Kabylie’s chairman Cherif Mellal and French coach Frank Dumas have today retained player Salim Boukhanchouche who had been initially sacked for indiscipline.
The Algerian international was dismissed by his domestic club for repeatedly skipping training without valid reasons.
Not long ago, Salim was told by Desert Foxes’ gaffer Djemal Belmadi that he risks seeing his potential fade away and consequently his place in the team if he fails to show more seriousness during training ground.
Aimed at ensuring he meant all his threats, Mellal ordered for the defensive midfielder’s demotion to the second team which also involved a deduction of his two months’ earnings.
The decision comes three days to the crucial fixture against Entente Sportif Setif billed for tomorrow, signaling no player is indispensable.
A meeting is on the cusp of being staged today between chairman Cherif and the 26-year-old’s agent over the recent saga.
Initiative to make a U-turn and accept the player back to the first-team comes after the star issued a groveling letter offering his apologies.
