Russian Club Anzhi Has Failed To Pay Money It Owes To Player Agency
Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala has "failed to pay" a €1.6M ($2.1M) transfer debt to a player agency despite being ordered to by three different courts in Switzerland, according to the AP. The oligarch-owned team, which includes "the world's highest-paid player" in Samuel Eto'o, has earned €1.8M ($2.3M) in UEFA bonuses from the Europa League this season. The player agency owed the money is Portugal's Onsoccer agency. It is seeking to have Anzhi's allocation "seized under a civil court order." The AP contacted Anzhi officials, but the team declined to comment (AP, 10/25).
