London:

David O'Leary is taking Dubai club Al Ahli to FIFA after claiming he was yet to receive compensation almost a year after being fired.

The former Leeds and Aston Villa manager's case is being backed by England's League Managers Association.

LMA chief executive Richard Bevan says O'Leary "has been left with no option but to place his contractual dispute with Al Ahli before the players' status committee/dispute resolution chamber of FIFA."

O'Leary was fired in April 2011 with more than two years remaining on his contract.
