Former chairman of FC Taraba, Tijjani Babangida, has revealed that Portuguese club Uniao de Madeira “messed up” a contract with Rio Olympics star Usman Mohammed and they will now have to let him go.
Babangida revealed that Madeira, who have now been relegated to the second division in Portugal, failed to pay the midfielder for six months and there were several issues concerning the contract they signed with the former Taraba skipper.
“There is a problem with his contract, so many wrong doings in the contract and the boy has cancelled the contract,” Babangida said.
“They have to release Usman because they did wrong, they did not pay a penny to the player for the six months he was there.
“The matter has now been brought before the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) and Usman will soon be set free for him to move to another club.”
