FIFA, the global governing body for football, has allegedly issued a directive to Accra Hearts of Oak, a Ghanaian club, demanding that they remunerate Serbian strategist Slavko Matic with a substantial sum of 50,000 US dollars. This payment is intended to address a breach of contract.
Matic brought his case to FIFA, citing unfair treatment that prompted his premature departure from the club during the preceding season. Following a 1-0 defeat to Great Olympics, he claims to have been ousted from training, effectively compelling him to distance himself from the team.
Upon lodging his official complaint, FIFA advised Matic to refrain from involvement with the club before eventually leaving Ghana altogether. As a result of the dispute, FIFA has mandated Accra Hearts of Oak to pay the substantial sum of 50,000 US dollars (equivalent to 568,425.00 cedis) within a stipulated period of 31 days to avert further punitive measures.
During his tenure in Ghana, Matic functioned as the head coach, overseeing 16 matches in the Ghanaian league.
