Duke Udi rejects Sunshine star sacking, reports club to LMC

Duke Udi says he will accept his sacking by Sunshine Stars if the struggling Premier League club are ready to pay him off. Sunshine on Saturday announced the termination of the former Nigeria midfielder’s contract. The Ondo State Government, who owns the club, initially directed the former Switzerland-based attacker “to step aside” following the allegations of “gross misconduct and insubordination” levelled against him.

However, Udi said the club should fulfil their own part of the contract by paying him his salary arrears before terminating his appointment. The former Shooting Stars player, who joined Sunshine from Osun United last year, said that the Akure side had yet to pay him his entitlement, noting that he had reported the matter to the League Management Company who promised to help get his money from the club.
