I-League champions Chennai City FC have submitted evidence and documents pertaining to the Nestor Gordillo issue to the All India Football Federation's (AIFF) Player Status Committee.

Earlier this month, the I-League champions had sought the AIFF's intervention, accusing Indian Super League (ISL) club FC Pune City of trying to poach their Spanish star Nestor Gordillo.

The Indian FA had sought an explanation from both parties. While Pune City denied their involvement in the matter, Gordillo informed AIFF that his contract was breached as he has not been paid bonuses for winning the I-League title by Chennai City. 

However, Chennai City had refuted those claims, detailing that he was paid all due wages and only the bonuses for winning the I-League was left to be paid. The club had also indicated that they were unable to do so since the AIFF were yet to pay them the prize money for the winning the league.

They had stated that Gordillo was trying to engineer a move to Pune City without having to pay compensation to Chennai City.

Nestor had played a key role in Chennai City's incredible campaign that saw them romp their way to the I-League title, scoring eight goals and providing numerous assists.
