Soccer-Keogh wins compensation claim against Derby after 'wrongful dismissal'

(Reuters) - Former Derby County defender Richard Keogh has won a compensation claim after the English Football League (EFL) ruled he had been wrongfully dismissed by the club in 2019 following a car accident.

However, a Player Related Dispute Commission (PRDC) ruled the 34-year-old was entitled to a full payout on his original contract until June 2021, with British media reporting it would amount to 2.3 million pounds ($3.24 million)."The PRDC held that Mr Keogh had not committed gross misconduct, that he had not brought the club into serious disrepute, and that he had been wrongfully dismissed by the club," the EFL said in a statement.
