The case is not without interest and it involved the technical director and chief coach of the national team of Jamaica, a Mexican citizen of Serbian origin, who had been hired in late 2006, and was terminated in November 2010. The coach filed a claim with the Players’ Status Committee of FIFA and he was awarded USD 1,000,000 for wrongful termination in February 2010. The Jamaican Football Federation appealed that decision to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).
