Ochieng in pay dispute with Simba



Kenyan defender Pascal Ochieng has reported Tanzanian Premier League champions Simba to the Tanzanian Football Federation (TFF) for not honoring a USD 8,000 signing fee they had agreed on when he moved from AFC Leopards.

The club is said to have disposed off the player in favour of the in-form Joseph Owino from Azam. However, Ochieng, in his visit to the TFF, indicated that he had not received any termination letter from the club.

“I have not received a cent of the signing fee promised to me by Simba, neither have I been paid my salary for the month of November,” said Ochieng.

“I also want it known that I still have a valid two-year contract with the club, ending in August 2014, one which prevents me from taking the numerous offers coming my way from Kenyan clubs. Besides, I have not received any official communication of my release from the club,” he added.

Pascal silently left Leopards in August 2012, without having played a match for the side. His departure became a subject of controversy, as Leopards were adamant that they would not release him.

He later bought out his contract with Leopards and moved on to Simba.
