Sacked S-League player appeals to FIFA

Former Engliosh Premier League club Charlton Athletic striker Kim Grant has lodged a complaint with football's world governing body FIFA and the Football Association of Singapore after being sacked by his S-League club Geyland United for swearing, the Today newspaper reported. Grant was sacked Tuesday after he used vulgar language at the cub's office on 5 June. "The vulgarity was targeted at the club ... it was unacceptable," Ong Yeok Phee, the club's General Manager said. Grant acknowledged he used strong language, but said he apologised for his behavior. According to the report, Grant said he swore because the club had only approved his leave application for 10 days, instead of the two weeks he had applied for.
