Midfielder Moses Okot has petitioned FUFA over unpaid salary arrears by Uganda Premier League side Onduparaka FC.
Earlier, Okot confirmed departure from the Caterpillars in May citing personal reasons.
The petition comes a day after the club confirmed release of 14 players.
Okot’s lawyer says that Onduparaka FC has ‘blatantly breached’ his client’s contract of employment.
“The player sent a letter of demand for the payables due to him but the same was ignored by the club,” reads a petition in brief.
The petition revealed: “The total contractual amounts owed to the player at the moment are Sh9m accruing as shown below – sh7m as outstanding salary from his two year contract and Sh2m as the outstanding from the unpaid sign on fees.”
The player’s lawyer demands Onduparaka to pay Okot the Sh9m immediately, terminate his contract and player be allowed to seek alternate employment.
The petition adds: “That the club pays punitive damages of Sh2m for admantly refusing to pay and mistreating the player.”
Okot joined Onduparaka from Soltillo Bright Stars after the expiration of his three years spell in September 2020.
He hasahad spells with The Saints, Gulu United Academy and Uganda Martyrs University in the University Football League where he was named the MVP and Top Scorer in 2013.
