FIFA Orders Liberia To Pay $123 000 To Ex-Coach Landi

FIFA have ordered the Liberia Football Association (LFA) to pay outstanding salaries to former coach Roberto Landi.

Landi parted ways with the Lone Star in 2012 and is yet to receive his money prompting the world football governing body to intervene ordering LFA to pay him.

The coach is owed US$123,150 following his unlawful dismissal and the FA has confirmed receiving a letter from FIFA.

On Friday, LFA confirmed on their social media pages that they have received the letter from the Switzerland-based entity.

Landi was sacked in February 2012 after being in charge for less than a year during which time he won only twice in eight matches.

“A ruling from FIFA disciplinary committee mandates the LFA to pay US$70,000 as outstanding salary plus a five-percent interest from 2 August 2012 until the effective date of the payment; US$3,150 as “dinner indemnity”, plus five percent interest from 2 August 2012 until the effective date of the payment and US$50,000 as compensation for the termination of contract, plus five-percent interest from 14 January 2014 until the effective date of the payment,” LFA said in a statement.

The Italian coach tool charge in 2011 and was heavily criticised by some for spending little time in the West African nation.

Should the federation fail to pay the staggering amount, then Liberia will be banned from all FIFA-sanctioned activities as per the football governing body rules.
