In September of last year, Korean player ‘A’ informed the Athletes’ Association that he was having difficulties in life because his team had not paid his salary for several months. In response, the Athletes’ Association proceeded with a DRC (Dispute Mediation Committee) lawsuit with the lawyer in charge of the International Football Players Association (FIFPRO) through continuous communication with the player, and as a result, the case was won.
Kim Hoon-ki, secretary general of the Athletes Association, said, “Among the players who play in overseas leagues, there are many players who suffer damage. It is difficult to communicate in the language and adapt to the culture of the country. Life is difficult, but playing in the game without pay for several months makes life a mess apart from being a player,” he expressed regret.
Next, Secretary General Kim said, “Many overseas players are still struggling with problems such as non-payment. In the future, the Athletes’ Association will continue to make efforts to ensure that the rights that all players deserve are upheld.”
Meanwhile, the Athletes’ Association added that it would work closely with FIFPRO to help players who suffered wage arrears.
