Portsmouth to pay Kanu Nwankwo 40 million Naira
Portsmouth's new owners have been left with a £6.72million bill to pay off 25 players - all of whom no longer play for the club and Nigerian legend Kanu Nwankwo is part of the ex Pompeys to be settled.
Papillo who spent six(6) seasons at the club, scoring 28 goals parted ways with the English team last year, after they refused to pay his wages.
The Pompey Supporters’ Trust, who took over the club in April, have only now learned the true horror of the financial mess they have inherited.And under the terms of the controversial football creditors’ rule, all the players must be paid in full by July 2016.
KANU whose lone goal gave Portsmouth the FA cup in 2008 will be credited with £155,314.50 – three lump-sum payments of £51,771.50 in March 2014, 2015 and 2016.
Other players to be settled include Tal Ben Haim, now a Standard Liege defender, who is owed a massive £1.6m, Birmingham’s Hayden Mullins must be paid £632,000, striker Benjani will get £214,000 while Aaron Mokoena is due a whopping £288,000.
