Club Brugge FC of Belgium star, David Okereke, has said that his attention has been drawn to an online publication that he is been sued for an alleged breach of contract and denied signing any contract with the claimant, Henry Ajamah, to manage him.
Ajamah, a football agent, had approached a Lagos High Court for an for alleged breach of contract suing Okereke in the process.
The Nigeria U-23 International, Okereke, who spoke through a telephone interview, said Patrick Bastianelli, is his agent and not Ajamah.
The 22-year-old said many of the claims by Ajamah in the said publication are false and asked Nigerians to disregard him.
“I was a minor in 2014, how would I have signed a professional contract then and Ajamah is not a football club to sign me.
“I signed my first professional contract with Spezia FC of Italy in January 2016 at this time I have the liberty under the law to decide for myself who is to manage me” Okereke said.
Okereke said he has directed his legal team to sue Ajamah for assassination of character and for putting his career at risk with his falsehood.
The Nigeria international said Ajamah has collected nothing less than N2.5m in batches as compensation while he was in Spezia of Italy.
