TORONTO - Fred Nykamp is suing the Canadian Soccer Association over what he claims was wrongful "hiring and firing."

The former head of Canada Basketball was announced as the CSA's chief executive officer at a news conference in May.

Nykamp was scheduled to start Aug. 1, but never worked a day for the CSA after his appointment was blocked by the organization's board of directors.

Nykamp said in a statement that the CSA board recruited him, then fired him, and then claimed it never hired him.

The lawsuit comes amid months of internal squabbling within the CSA.

Earlier this month, Colin Linford resigned as president of the CSA, claiming a lack of support.

Linford chaired the selection committee that hired Nykamp, an Ancaster, Ont., native.
