Late payments common in Croatia, says FIFPro

MOST COMMENTED

Players in Croatia are not paid on time and sometimes kicked out of their apartments because their clubs have not paid the rent, the international players' union FIFPro said.

Only six of 16 clubs in the Croatian First Division are paying regularly, claims FIFPro, which is responding to complaints filed by players seeking unpaid wages. FC Karlovac players have not been paid in seven months. Other clubs said to be in arrears include FC Sibenik (11 months) and FC Varazdin (13 months), according to a statement released by the agency, which also cites a lack of action by the Croatian soccer association (CFF) to address the issue.

Former international Dario Simic, president of the Croatian players’ association HUNS, said, "Clubs generally sign contracts which they know from the start will not be fulfilled. It is time to force the Croatian federation to have better control of its clubs’ finances, and to take care of the players in the game.”
