FC Fortune boss wants fortune from Fortune 04/03/04
Colin Gie, one of the country's most respected youth development coaches, has taken Quinton Fortune, the Manchester United midfielder to court for unpaid loyalties.

In the Cape High Court where  the case is being heard, Gie wants Fortune to pay him 20% of his earnings from 1998 when Gie was his manager up to the next 15 years when the agreement is supposed to expire.

Colin Gie, is the owner and coach of first division soccer club, FC Fortune which he formed with Fortune in 1998 when the player joined Manchester United.

Fortune is arguing that Safa and Fifa rules say that a player and his manager are supposed to have a contract that is renewed after every two years.

If the High rules that Fortune is in violation of the contract, he will have to pay Gie about R160 000 a week. The former Bafana Bafana player is also accusing Gie for his unconscionable manner to persuade him to sign the contract.

The judge, Justice Andre Blignaut postponed the case to the 17th of March when he will make a ruling.
