Spanish coach Lucas Gonzalez Alcaraz has defeated his former employers, Algerian Football Federation, FAF in a legal battle at FIFA.
The 53-year-old serve as manager of the Desert Foxes of Algeria between April-October 2017 before his contract was unilaterally terminated by the Algerian Football Federation with two-years left in his contract.
The decision from FAF boss, Khereddine Zetchi didn’t go down well with the current Albecete coach prompting the later to invoke justice at FIFA.
This weekend the world Football governing body has instructed the FAF to pay the sum of $1.3 Million to the Spaniard within 30 days. The penalty constitutes Lucas’ salary for the entire two years he was contracted plus a 5% interest.
The amount could arise if FAF fails to pay within the deadline and the penalty may extend further to punish the team by denying the current African Champions the chance to participate in international competitions.
The Algerian football federation has appealed the decision at the Court of Arbitration for Sports in Lausanne-Switzerland.
