Turkey’s former national team coach Fatih Terim, who was fired by the Turkish Football Federation (TFF) last week, is going to receive TL 1,193,000 (291,000 euros) as unemployment compensation for the next 15 months if he doesn’t find a new job.
According to the SporX website, Terim will be paid by the TFF during his unemployment according to the agreement, which will expire on Oct. 15, 2018.
If the TFF unilaterally ends the agreement with Terim, he will be paid an amount of TL 1,193,000 (291,000 euros) as unemployment compensation. If he enters into a new contract with a new team, the TFF payment will be terminated.
After reports in the Turkish media saying that Terim and TFF had mutually agreed to end their contract, the famous coach said his agreement was unilaterally terminated by the TFF.
On July 26 the TFF said in a statement: “Some non-football issues are weighing down our football director Fatih Terim and the TFF management. So we have agreed that it would be healthier for both parties to part ways.”
However, contrary to the TFF’s claims, Terim, who formerly coached Fiorentina, AC Milan, and Galatasaray, said on his official Twitter account: “I did not resign from the job I have been performing for three-and-a-half years. Let me be clearer: I was sacked by the TFF.”
