Global Club probed for unpaid wages
Philippines Football League (PFL) club Global FC is facing the threat of losing its license from the PFL and the Philippine Football Federation (PFF) following fresh allegations from a player on its inability to fulfill financial obligations.
Sources said the PFF leadership is upset that the club is once again the subject of a complaint that surfaced online, this time coming from Ghanaian player John Cofie, a former Manchester United youth player, who has claimed that Global’s new owner, Mazinyi Management, has not paid him his signing fee and six months of wages.
PFL commissioner Coco Torre said he is meeting with Global management, which will be represented by Mark Jarvis, who claimed that he is now a consultant of the club after selling it to Mazinyi early this year.
“[We want to] discuss these allegations and to know their position on the matter,” Torre said. “Contracts must be honored and financial obligations must be fulfilled so we are treating this as a very serious matter.”
Reached by the Inquirer via phone on Tuesday, Jarvis said Global remains committed to participating in the PFL.
He said Mazinyi is working to settle its financial obligations to the players this week. INQ
