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.”
