Haiti International Sony Norde who plies his trade with Mohun Bagan said on Sunday that he his yet to receive the prize money for the ‘Man of the Match’ awards he has been won over two seasons.
The Mohun Bagan star has been one of the key players for the Kolkata giants, scoring 17 goals in the 45 matches he has played since joining the side in 2014.
“I did not receive anything. I won Man of the Match awards in the I-League last season as well as this season. I was also adjudged the best player in the Federation Cup. But I am yet to receive the cash,” Norde told reporters here on Sunday. If they give me the money, no problem. If they don’t want to give, also I don’t have a problem,” he said.
Norde, who represented Haiti at the Copa America last year, said it is up to the All India Football Federation (AIFF) and the sponsors to resolve the issue. “It is the responsibility of the sponsors to pay the money to the club or the federation. When they want to pay, they will pay. So I don’t have a problem. I won’t talk to them. It is not my job,” he said.
