Betis may fine Nosa Igiebor N4.1mn

Nosa Igiebor

 Igiebor returned late to the club after his stint at the Africa Cup of Nations.

Reports from Spain indicate that Nigeria international, Nosa Igiebor, has been slapped with a fine amounting to over N4.1m (€20,000) by his Spanish Club, Real Betis, as punishment for returning late from the Africa Cup of Nations.

Igiebor only returned to Spain on March 8, almost a month after winning the African competition with the Super Eagles.

According to the skilful midfielder, travel glitches which included visa issues accounted for his late return; but that did not stop Betis from opening a disciplinary case against him.

After consulting legal services, Betis were seen by Nosa’s representatives as unlikely to hit him with a fine of more than 30 per cent of his €25,000 (N5.2 million) monthly salary.

However, according to reports on Friday, the club has determined a maximum possible fine of 75 per cent of his wages for the month’s absence, equating to €20,000, in light of a charge of serious misconduct.

Betis are expected to announce their official decision next week.

The 22-year-old, who has made10 appearances his first season in La Liga, has been training regularly with the club since his return.
