Brazilian striker Jackson Nogueira on Tuesday filed a complaint against HCMC Club for not paying him his salary for three months and for not caring about his injury.
In a letter (in English and Vietnamese) to the Vietnam Football Federation, Jackson, who was returning after an absence of three months, asked that the club pay him three monthsââ‚¬â„¢ salary of about US$15,000.
Luong Trung The, General Director of Southern Steel Saigon Port Football Company, which owns the HCMC Club, said the club had done nothing wrong.
The said Jackson was not in the registered list of players for the first half of the 2010 season and wasnââ‚¬â„¢t paid his usual salary because he violated the clubââ‚¬â„¢s regulations.
Jackson came back 12 days late, so he was penalized by being asked to train with the clubââ‚¬â„¢s junior team and being paid just $100 a month.
According to The, the club is waiting for Jackson to recover from his injury rather than unilaterally terminating his contract.
