Time and time again, Stimac has claimed that his contract had no termination clause. So, if his contract is terminated, then he has to be paid 2 years of his salary as compensation. But on 17th June, the AIFF Technical Committee decided to sack the Croatian after India failed to make it to Round 3 of the FIFA World Cup Qualifiers.

“Based on the foregoing (not “all above”), I kindly request you to immediately, but no later than the next ten (10) days, arrange payment for the termination of my contract without just cause. This amount should represent the remaining value of my employment contract prematurely terminated by the AIFF, in accordance with Article 6 of Annex 2 of the FIFA Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players. Otherwise, I will initiate proceedings against the AIFF before the competent FIFA Football Tribunal and file a lawsuit,” Stimac told RevSportz.

Stimac has very carefully claimed that if his compensation payment for a span of 2 years is not made, then he would take legal action. The Croatian manager will file a lawsuit against the All India Football Federation (AIFF) at the FIFA Football Tribunal/

Stimac denies 3 month Salary

Previously Stimac had claimed that he would resign if India fails to make it to the next round of the World Cup Qualifiers. And after the Blue Tigers failed to make it, the public sentiments turned against the Croatian. Reports from the Times of India claim that Stimac denied taking a 3 month salary before mutually terminating his contract.

“Stimac had publicly said that he would resign if he does not take India to the third round (of the World Cup qualifiers). India exited on June 11 and since then we have not heard anything from him. This decision has been taken in national interest. Compensation is secondary,” a senior AIFF official told Times of India.

“AIFF offered Stimac a three-month salary for mutually terminating the contract. He did not agree. We could not afford to drag this for more time and decided to bring an end to this chapter,” said another official.

Earlier, Stimac claimed that he would resign without taking any compensation, provided the AIFF Top brass resigns with him. But now as things stand, a legal battle between the duo looks imminent.
