LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) – Switzerland's supreme court has dismissed five-time World Cup coach Bora Milutinovic's legal bid to receive a million-dollar pay-off from the Jamaica Football Federation after being fired in 2007.
Miltunovic originally sought $3 million to settle the three years remaining on his deal when he was sacked for an unspecified breach of contract.
The Swiss Federal Tribunal rejected Milutinovic's final appeal Wednesday and confirmed he would receive compensation of less than $20,000.
However, the tribunal also ordered the Serbian coach to pay 32,000 Swiss francs ($40,000) in court costs and legal fees.
Milutinovic's legal battle pitted him against Jamaican officials, FIFA and the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
