Venezuelan Football Federation paid overdue wages to coach José Peseiro


I inform you that the FVF proceeded today (Tuesday) to pay the debt owed to me”, announced José Peseiro on his Twitter account.

In the same message on that social network, the Portuguese coach stresses that he would like to “thank the Federation for all its efforts to overcome this situation, and wish it every success in solving the various problems facing Venezuelan football”.

Last November 10, José Peseiro, who in August terminated his contract with the Venezuela national team, formally sued the Venezuelan Football Federation (FVF) for not having paid him 14 months’ wages.

That same day, in response to José Peseiro’s decision, the FVF board of directors announced that “would try to pay all the debt later this month (November), or reach an agreement with the former coach, so that the process would be immediately withdrawn”, according to the sports portal Meridiano.

On August 19, José Peseiro resigned as coach of the Venezuelan national soccer team, having received no payment since the first quarter of last year.

The termination was confirmed to journalists by the president of the FVF, Jorge Giménez, during a press conference broadcast by the ‘online’ video platform Youtube.

José Peseiro was confirmed as the selector of ‘la Vinotinto’, on February 4, 2020, replacing the Venezuelan Rafael Dudamel.

On August 24, the new FVF management announced, in a statement, the appointment of local coach Leonardo Alberto González as interim coach for Vintotinto, the team he played for.

Leonardo Alberto González, 49, is from Trujillo (Venezuela) and technical director of the Venezuelan team Desportivo de Lara.

On September 8, the Venezuelan Football Federation announced that it was in talks to pay off the debt to former Portuguese coach José Peseiro.
