FIFA Fines Haan for Dumping Cameroon
Saturday, November 27, 2010
FIFA has slapped a total fine of US$700,000 on Dutch coach Arie Haan for abandoning his post as Cameroon coach.
The world governing body ordered the Dutch football legend to pay the heavy fine to the Cameroon FA for breaching his contract.
Haan has until the end of this month to appeal against the decision.
Cameroon FA reported Haan to FIFA in March 2007 after he abandoned his post, failing to fulfil the condition of living in the African country to work.
"The decision was rendered by FIFA's Players' Status Commission on November 16 in Zurich," Cameroon FA announced.
"The litigation between the two parties was based on the unilateral termination of the contract between the Dutch coach and Fecafoot.
"Arie Haan has 30 days from being notified of the decision to pay the fine."
Haan was appointed coach of the Indomitable Lions in in August 2006 on a two-year contract.
But the team struggled to post good results and Haan refused to stay in the country even though he had signed a contract to work in Cameroon.
He quit the post in January 2007 but the Cameroon FA reported him to FIFA two months later claiming he abandoned his post. [Via]
