FIFA gives Lazio more time to respond over Onazi

Lazio have been given  more time to respond to FIFA over a wages dispute with their former player and Nigeria international midfielder Ogenyi Onazi.

The 23-year-old left Lazio for Turkish side Trabzonspor in August but alleges the Italians owe him two months’ wages.


Lazio had until 29 November to submit their response but now have an extra 10 days to state their case, says FIFA. Onazi’s representatives  approached FIFA  after Lazio failed to respond to their emails, fax and telephone calls.

Lazio had sought a 20-day extension to FIFA’s deadline, claiming they are struggling to translate written letters from Italian to English.

Onazi, who spent five years at Lazio and scored seven goals in 110 appearances, told BBC Sport: “It is unfortunate that the club chose this path.

“I believe in FIFA’s justice system to get my money from Lazio.”
