Nigerian soccer veteran Nwaknwo Kanu may be in a bit of trouble with his club Portsmouth FC due to his tardiness. The striker is said to have missed 2 days of training with his teammates at Fratton Park without offering any explanations.
“Kanu is back in Nigeria” said club administrator Trevor Birch. “That is the understanding from his legal adviser, who I have been speaking to. I don’t actually know why he hasn’t come back. You will have to phone him and ask him.”
“What I do know, though, is we have not reached a compromise” he continued. “He was due back on Monday along with the rest of the contracted players. Then he just didn’t turn up.”
“Kanu must turn up for training, or this is a breach of contract. Whether it is sufficient enough to terminate his contract I don’t know at this stage, we will have to wait and see.”
“He will have to be disciplined, though.” he added. ‘What we intend to do is an internal matter. I cannot talk about that.”
“However, if it is a continued absence we will have to bring in the PFA.”
