Announced as a start to Racing 92 for several months, the Fijian coast of Mont-de-Marsan Wame Naituvi (26 years old) isn’t quite sure to put his suitcases in the Upper Seine this summer, that’s all we can say.
Although the player has decided, on Wednesday, June 8, to seize the prud’hommes council to request the cancellation of his contract, which is shortened until June 2023 in the Landes, his current employer is not in the mood to be released. Indeed, this Wednesday, June 15, the leaders of Stade Montois published an official statement on the club’s official website to denounce what they describe as “an attempt to destabilize its player.”
“There is no early exit clause on June 30, 2022,” according to Mont-de-Marsan
Indeed, the Landa club laments “an attempt to destabilize Wame Naituviby an agent, a lawyer and a Top 14 ″ club are trying to recall in order their Fijian airline, again under contract for the 2022-2023 season.
“There is no clause for early release on June 30, 2022, contrary to the assertions of his lawyer Maître Ginies, to whom we leave the responsibility of his statements,” said the leaders of the former montois rugby club, who had a regular term before. to lose the Pro D2 final against Bayonne, and then tilt in the Access-Match against Perpignan last Sunday.
Justice is seized
At the Montois Stadium since 2017, the former Clermont Wame Naituvi player has seen two rather timid first-timers in the Landes, before excelling in the 2019-2020 season, arrested for Covid (18ssa matches)). In the summer of 2020, the Fiji man extended it until 2023 with a liberation clause in his contract. Except that the player’s council, Maître Jean-Baptiste Ginies, who took over the Mont-de-Marsan men’s prud’hommes council, explains that, on the day of the signing of the new contract, “the terms of the clause in question would have was modified by the club. »For his part, the Stade Montois considering that its player took the value after two new successful seasons (8 exams in 2020-2021 and 9 during the current season) and therefore demand more than the 50,000 euros initially planned.
The conciliation hearing before the Prud’hommes council was not given. The legal commission of the National League has declared itself incompetent. The Naituvi case is therefore now in the hands of the justice. The Fijian player’s lawyer hopes for a decision by the end of the year or early 2023. Wame Naituivi wants to leave and hopes that a friendly agreement will be found here. In the opposite case, he will wait for the judicial decision and hope to obtain the nullity of the contract and consequently be free to engage with the club of his choice.
