The Turkish Football Association has written to FIFA that Cranes’ Player, Hassan Wasswa’s contract was terminated by his former club, Kayseri Erciyersspor over the player’s gross misconduct while still at the club.
Reacting to FIFA’s ultimatum, explaining the circumstances surrounding Hassan Wasswa’s delayed move from the Turkish club to Kampala City Council Authority F.C, the Turkish FA has confirmed that Wasswa was a victim of indiscipline that the club could never tolerate.
According to the Turkish FA General Secretary Prof. Dr. Emre Alkin, Hassan Wasswa’s contract with Club Kayseri was terminated after he reportedly failed to honour several official invitations back to the club.
“Our affiliated club has terminated the contract between Hassan Wasswa and itself. For that reason, Club Kayseri Erciyesspor objected to the issuing of the ITC for player Hassan Wasswa”, reads part of the Turkish FA letter to FIFA secretariat.
The International Football body (FIFA) has meanwhile named an American, Chuck Blazer, as a single judge in the Hassan Wasswa case following a resistance by the Turkish Football Federation (TFF) to clear him for an International Transfer Certificate (ITC).
FIFA on Tuesday February 12th wrote to FUFA indicating that all the investigations into this case had been concluded and the matter handed over to Mr. Blazer, a single judge for further consideration and final ruling.
FIFA, through Counsel Saskja Kuhn of the Players status committee had earlier given TFF up to February 12 to give a final response as to why they were holding onto Wasswa’s ITC. Their response came on the eve of the expiry of the ultimatum. The appointed judge will have to come up with a final verdict to determine the fate of Wasswa’s move to KCC.
FUFA however in a press release requested FIFA to speed up the process in order to give the Cranes’ player an opportunity to get involved in active football a head of the World Cup qualifiers matches due next month.
