Dutch Football Federation, KNVB said they are not worried about the lawsuit that former Sierra Leone national team captain, Ibrahim Kargbo, wants to institute against them, stating that they are awaiting such move.
The former Williem II midfielder admitted that he will claim compensation and his lawyer will have to make sure that the KNVB clears his name through legal channel.
However, Gijs de Jong, Secretary General of the KNVB, told Dutch journalists on Tuesday that: “We’ll wait and see what Kargbo will do; we look forward to legal steps with confidence.”
Last Friday, Dutch publication Omroepbrabant.nl reported that the former Williem II player will not be prosecuted for match-fixing after the public prosecution office confirmed that the defensive midfielder will not be prosecuted over an allegation of match-fixing due to lack of hard evidence.
According to De Jong, Kargbo might not have read correctly what the Public Prosecution Service said, adding that: “They indicate that criminal law cannot be proven, but they do not say that nothing is wrong.”
“The public prosecutor has said that she has abdominal pain and that Kargbo has tried to fix it here, and it is rare for the judiciary to exhaust itself on a case.”
Kargbo who now plays for Dulwich Hamlet FC, an English semi-professional club that is active at regional level played for Willem II from 2006 to 2010.
