FIFA to deduct points and fine Raja Casablanca over Yakubu Mohammed

FIFA has given Raja Casablanca an ultimatum to pay all monies owned Ghanaian striker Mohammed Yakubu or risk points deduction and a fine, GHANASoccernet.com can exclusively report.

Yakubu had his contract unlawfully terminated by the Moroccan side in July 2016.

The burly forward claimed his contract was ripped up because the North African side abused him racially.

Yakubu's case is the third case Raja have lost since the beginning of 2018 after players Hassan Al-Tayer and Tunisian Khaled Al-Qirbi won their cases.

Raja Casablanca are in dire financial difficulties and the latest FIFA sanctions will worsen their plight.
