'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Mr Fixer sues Mr Martins

With Chris Nathaniel having been a major player in the hilariously much maligned Nigerian consortium bid (Ed - whatever happened to that?), the alleged super agent has crossed paths with an NUFC connection again, this time in suing Oba Martins.

Martins allegedly 'entered into a written agreement' with NVA Management on July 17 2007, in which he agreed to pay 299,167 after signing the paperwork.

Nathaniel claims he negotiated image rights with the club and that he is owed 13,054 in commission from brokering deals with Pepsi and Peak Milk, and a further 10,000 Euros (8740) from securing a Nike deal. Martins has paid NVA Management 92,533 in two separate bank transfers, but a balance of 283,640.91 remains unpaid.

One of Oba`s unnamed pals told the Sunday Sun: 'Oba was not best pleased when he was asked for so much money so soon after his mum died. But he still didn`t think there was any bad feeling when he and Nathaniel went their separate ways, so this writ is upsetting for him.'
