Player Club Agreement

A disagreement over training allowances sometimes leads to legal disputes to avoid payment signed by Matthias Lepiller in 2006 from Fiorentina, but an appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) was rejected in 2011, five years after Lepiller left the club. The clubs have also entered into a special transfer agreement to reduce the actual signing costs. As a free agent, Attila Filkor joined a Maltese association and immediately sold to Inter Milan. With the pricing schedule varying between the Maltese division and the Italian division, savings were made until Filkors sued Inter with FIFA. In 2013, FIFPro launched an action against the transfer system. [135] [136] [137] [138] FifPro-President Phillipe Piat stated that „the transfer system fails 99% of players worldwide, it fails football as an industry and it fails because of the most popular game in the world”. According to Bobby Barnes, European President of FIFPro, 28% of the money from a replacement sum is paid to agents[136] and many players are not paid on time or not at all. [136] [137] He asserts that these players are „vulnerable targets of criminal syndicates that launch match-fixing and threaten the existence of credible football competitions”. [135] Matt Slater wrote to the BBC that „professional footballers do not enjoy the same freedoms as almost any other EU worker” [138] and that „players look at American sport and wonder why their career prospects are still limited by replacement benefits and compensation costs.” Barnes argues that „the system promotes speculative, indefensible, immoral and illegal investment models such as the ownership of third-party players.” [137] In 2008, the Premier League banned the ownership of third parties in England[65] and in 2012 Michel Platini, then UEFA president, issued a statement. plans to prohibit the possession of third parties were revealed, according to which „the committee decided that the ownership of football players by third parties should in principle be prohibited”,[66] while Gianni Infantino, then UEFA Secretary General, stated that „the ownership of football players by third parties should in principle be prohibited” [66], while Gianni Infantino , then UEFA Secretary General, stated that „the ownership of football players should in principle be prohibited by third parties”,[66] while Gianni Infantino, then UEFA Secretary General, stated that „the ownership of football players should in principle be prohibited by third parties”[66], while Gianni Infantino, then UEFA Secretary General, had stated that „the ownership of football players should in principle be prohibited by third parties”[66] , while UEFA Secretary General Gianni Infantino was UEFA`s Secretary General at the time. that „the ownership of football players by third parties should in principle be prohibited”,[66] while the then UEFA Secretary General, Gianni Infantino, stated that „the ownership of football players by third parties should in principle be prohibited”[66], while Gianni Infantino, then UEFA Secretary General, stated that „the ownership of third parties carries many threats , and there are a lot of issues related to the integrity of the competition, and it is really time to regulate that and adopt an attitude on that. [67] In 2014, Platini again called for an end to the practice: „If FIFA does not act, we will tackle this problem in our own competitions in Europe. UEFA`s executive committee has already positioned itself in principle on this issue, and we will do so,” adding that it is a „threat to our sport” and „threatens the integrity of our competitions, damages the image of football, poses a long-term threat to the finances of clubs and even raises questions about human dignity”. [68] It was supported by FIFPro, the global organization representing 65,000 professional footballers, which said players` rights were „under fire”.

[69] In September 2014, Sepp Blatter, then FIFA president, announced that third-party ownership should be completely banned after an indeterminate transitional period. [70] [71] In professional football, a transfer
