Iheanacho’s Move To Leicester City Under Threat After Losing Court Case On Image Right Dispute
Kelechi Iheanacho ’s proposed move from Manchester City to Leicester City has hit a fresh brick wall,after a tribunal sitting in Manchester ruled against his wishes in the battle over his image right.
US Based First Eleven are in court with Iheanacho’s preferred management team Stellar Group over his image right.
The City approached the court to validate his decision to terminate his contract with First Eleven.
The 20 year old handed his image right to the company in July 2015 when he clocked 18. Although First Eleven claim to have been managing his image rights since 2013.
Per a ruling by a tribunal in Manchester, Iheanacho’s plea to have his contract terminated with First Eleven was rejected.
The US based company also confirmed by the court as the real owners of his image rights.
Which was brokered by Stellar group and not the management team confirmed by the court.
However there are chances that the case will be settled between the parties for the sake of his move to Leicester City.
