The chamber on resolution of disputes of the Russian football Union (RFU) has acknowledged that the Moscow “Dynamo” has dismissed 34-year-old striker Pavel Pogrebnyak is in violation of the law. About it reports “R-Sport”.
Dynamo is obliged to pay 34-year-old striker in an amount equal to its semi-annual salary at the club (nearly 60 million). The player himself did not attend the meeting. His interests were represented by sports lawyer Mikhail Prokopets.
“Not all the demands of Paul was fulfilled, but will discuss with the client, maybe it will go to the court of arbitration for Sport (CAS). Dynamo has the right to appeal against this decision at CAS,” said Prokopets.
In early March, the parties put forward to address each other’s demands for compensation for early termination of the contract of the player. Pogrebnyak was going to recover from former club almost 60 million rubles. Dynamo, in turn, demanded 20 million euros in compensation for termination of the contract due to his fault.
The conflict between the player and the club erupted in January, when “Dinamo” in the domestic proceedings established a violation of discipline on the part of 34-year-old striker. Pogrebnyak missed the 20th round of the Russian football Premier League (RFPL) against the “Anji” and was spotted in the stands of match of the championship of Italy “Juventus” — “inter”. After that the Moscow club has terminated the contract with the player unilaterally.
In the blue and white Pogrebnyak spent 25 games and scored just one goal. After leaving the Dynamo striker has signed a contract with another Premier League club — “Tosno”. For the club from Leningrad region, the former player of Russian national team has played six matches and scored four goals in all competitions.
