Sacked Daniel Cousins Threatens to Drag Gabon FA to FIFA Court

Gabon football governing body FEGAFOOT have up to the end of this month to clear what is due to former Panthers coach Daniel Cousin or risk being banned from international football.

Cousin, who was sacked in March after failing to qualify Gabon to 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, is claiming salary arrears amounting to € 341,500.

[perfectpullquote align=”full” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=””]“I don’t want to comment on this because I wrote to them (Fegafoot) and they never replied; I talked to them and they promised but never fulfilled their promises,” [/perfectpullquote]

Cousins said when reached for a comment.

Ducor Sports understands that Cousin is preparing to file a case at the Fifa dispute resolution chamber in Zurich within the next seven days demanding that Fegafoot clear his outstanding salary and other dues.

Fegafoot announced in February that it had settled part of Cousin’s salary arrears after the coach formally signed a contract to take charge of the Panthers.

However, at that particular moment Fegafoot were not particular on the amount paid as Cousins had worked for six months without receiving salary.

If Cousins goes on with his threats Gabon will risk a FIFA ban like they did to Zimbabwe if what is due to him is not paid. In March 2015, the FIFA disciplinary committee expelled the Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) from the preliminary competition of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia.

The expulsion came as a result of the non-payment of an outstanding debt by ZIFA to the coach José Claudinei Georgini following a decision passed on 15 August 2012 by the single judge of FIFA’s Players’ Status Committee.
