FIFA has sanctioned Gasogi United after it found that the club made mistakes in signing Nigerian striker, Gabriel Nanbur Nannim, to a one-year contract but refusing to sign him.
In July 2022, Gabriel Nanbur signed for Gasogi United, for 1.5 million Frw.
The 22-year-old player, when he was preparing to appear wearing the shirt of Gasogi United, was informed by its President, Kakooza Nkuriza Charles, that he is no longer in his program because of the way he behaved in the friendly match that brought this team together with AS Kigali and came to miss the calculated goal.
The player, who had nowhere to go because the market for buying and selling had already been closed, decided to submit to the legal process, investing in Gasogi United in the FIFA courts.
After almost four months, he filed a complaint, and FIFA ordered Gasogi United to pay him.
The decision on this claim was published on January 31, 2023, and was notified to the Rwanda Football Association, Gasogi United, and the player and his lawyers.
FIFA has ordered Gasogi United to pay Gabriel Nanbur 189,315 Frw that was owed on his purchase and 5% interest from September 22, 2022, until the money is paid.
“All other charges have been dismissed,” he said.FIFA has sanctioned Gasogi United after it found that the club made mistakes
FIFA continues to state that “In the event that it does not pay [Gassogi United] the money including interest, it will be punished by not registering players for the next three seasons of buying and selling players.”
Gasogi United and Gabriel Nanbur have 10 days to appeal the decision made by FIFA.
The 22-year-old Gabriel Nanbur is a striker who played for the first-division teams in Nigeria including Nasarawa United where he played with former AS Kigali striker Abubakar Lawal, who recently parted ways with Vipers of Uganda.
The trial continued at FC Shkupi of Macedonia in 2019, during the two-month holiday this team did in Turkey, where they met with the Tigers and Rayon Sports defender, Rwatubye Abdul, who crossed over from the Colorado Switchbacks in the United States.
After leaving Macedonia, Gabriel returned to FC Abuja in Nigeria where the recruiter from Europe told him that there is a Rwandan who is in charge of connecting teams and players who wants him to play for Mukura Victory Sports et Loisir y I Huye.
When Gabriel arrived in Kigali, a Rwandan called him and told him that he had found a team called Mukura Victory Sports.
He came to prove himself in the tournament held at Mumena, which included the best players in the First Division of Football in Rwanda.
In this tournament, Gabriel scored five goals and scored one goal in four games.
Many teams including Sunrise FC and Rayon Sports were interested in him but in the end, KNC took him and allowed him to sign.
The relationship between KNC and Gabriel fell apart after the match between Gasogi United and AS Kigali, this team lost 1-0. He mistimed a calculated goal that led to a penalty.
Five days before the start of the Championship, the Team Manager of Gasogi United, Kabera Fils, sent him a message on his mobile phone informing him that the management of the team decided to fire him.
Gabriel, who had already been dismissed, wrote to KNC shortly afterward that he was going to cooperate with those in charge of finding his clubs and a legal representative and sue him in FIFA because he was dismissed illegally.
Atouba, who is in charge of recruiting Gabriel, spoke to KNC, asking him that if the player is not happy with him after signing the contract, they will terminate the contract peacefully, requesting that he be given a letter of release, training bonus (TPA: Training Player Allowance) and annual wages equal to 4.2 million Frw and he would be paid 350 thousand Frw per month.
KNC rejected this saying that although the player has signed a one-year contract, he has not played a single match for the team and is not even on the list of players given by FERWAFA.
