FIFPro to hold talks over player treatment

FIFPro are to hold talks with FIFA, UEFA and the European Commission about the behaviour of a growing number of clubs in regards to their treatment of players with contracts nearing expiry.

• Sneijder omission 'technical decision'
• Llorente clashes with club

FIFPro - the worldwide trade union for professional footballers - are unhappy with the way clubs often drop players who refuse to sign a new contract when their current deal is coming to an end.

Recent examples have seen Wesley Sneijder of Inter Milan and Fernando Llorente of Athletic Bilbao both finding their game time limited due to their unwillingness to sign a new deal.

FIFPro general secretary Theo van Seggelen says there are plenty of other examples all over Europe and believes something needs to be done to stop this trend.

"This type of practice used to be an exception," he told Volkskrant. "Unfortunately, we now see clubs in all countries in Europe using this type of measure. For us, the time has come to sound the bell.

"Clubs say that players must respect contracts, but why should that not apply in reverse? It is not as if Sneijder has taken a gun to the head of the board of Inter to force them to submit that contract. The club offered it to him with their full understanding.

"The way in which contracts are handled is also a disaster for FIFA and UEFA. Winning a match is something you do with your best players. It seems as if football is increasingly becoming more of a business, football is taking second place and that is unacceptable for us.

"I do not understand how it benefits a club not to play a player. As club, you are damaging the career of that player. And then, do you benefit from that as club? If you want to offer a player a lower contract, you must only do that at the end of his current contract."
