Victor Anichebe reports Beijing Enterprises to FIFA for match-fixing

anichebeNigerian striker Victor Anichebe’s conflict with Beijing Enterprises has evolved into an even bigger dispute after the Ex-Everton and West Brom striker claimed the club told him “not to try” on two occasions.

His dispute with the Chinese club started in October last year, and in the 12 months since, he has sought legal advice over the situation.

Apparently lawyers representing Anichebe were ignored, leading the striker to file a complaint with FIFA.

The lawyer for Anichebe, Chris Farnell, confirmed: “We have been instructed to approach Beijing’s general manager on the player’s behalf but, to date, his appeals for action have been ignored on two occasions.”

“We have since reported the matter to the appropriate associations.”

The Nigerian only made 10 appearances for the Chinese Second Division side, and claims that he has lost a year of his career over the whole ordeal, as well as a place in the Nigerian World Cup squad.
