Super Eagles  midfielder  Ogenyi Onazi is reportedly planning  to report  his former club Lazio to FIFA over unpaid wages.

According to  AfricanFootball.com on Wednesday, the South Africa 2013 Africa Cup of Nations winner, who dumped Italian Serie side Lazio for  Turkish  outfit  Trabzonspor during the summer,  is not happy that he is being owed two months’ salary by his former employers.

“Onazi is taking Lazio to FIFA over unpaid wages,” a source told AfricanFootball.com.

“He is not happy with them and has contacted the club over the issue but it seems they are not ready to pay. He has  served them a letter already.”

He is being owed May and June wages.

The  23-year-old player, who represented Nigeria at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, featured  for the Eagles in their  2-1 defeat of Zambia in  their opening Russia  2018 World Cup Group B qualifier at   Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola on October 9.

He spent four seasons at Lazio, helping them win  the 2012-13 Coppa Italia.

Onazi had claimed he swapped  Lazio for Trabzonspor to clear his head and be happy playing football again.

The player  said, “I needed to make this move to clear my head and be happy playing football again.”
