FIFA have ordered Congolese giants TP Mazembe to pay Liberty Professionals $12,000 in solidarity of the termination of the contract of Richard Kissi Boateng.
Kissi Boateng, who joined the Lubumbashi-based side whiles on loan at Berekum Chelsea in the 2011 season was released by the club earlier this year after failing to nail down a regular spot.
The former CAF Champions League winners are expected to pay $12,000 to Liberty in the next 14 working days as part of the clause in the player’s contract.
In an interview with Peace FM, Ghanaian rep of TP Mazembe, Oduro Sarfo confirmed the order by the world’s football governing body.
“Yes, I have forwarded the letter to the Congolese FA which is to be given to TP Mazembe on the decision by FIFA.”
“The money is about $12,000 and it must be paid as soon as possible. This was stated in the player’s clause before who moved to TP Mazembe.”
