Clubs and players already agree to extend contracts after J-30

first_imgThe biggest problem will be for those who finish June 30 and are still looking for a destination. They are the most in a hurry because when this season ends and they want to negotiate they will have to do so at a disadvantage since 20-21, having to be shorter, will allow clubs to negotiate downwards and the economy will be very weakened by the loss of income due to the effects of COVID-19. In addition, foreigners who end on June 30 have a plus and there could also be trouble with them: their tax withholding is less and any expansion beyond the gross initially agreed may be a serious correction by the Treasury.While the calm arrives, the different organisms are remembering their intentions. FIFA drops its wish: “Contracts normally end at the end of the season and the season end date coincides with the expiration date of the contract. It is proposed that the contracts be extended until the time the season actually ends.” The new transfer window will open there and not before. The RFEF clings to its general regulations in point 125: “The licenses will have the same duration as the footballer’s commitment, whether or not contractual, with the club.” AFE shows battle: “A systematized extension would produce a violation of the rights of the worker if it were not a decision of the signatory parties negotiated individually, as a single act, each of those contracts. It would lead to challenges in the courts.” LaLiga is convinced that the law is clear and is on the side of the clubs considering that the contracts are signed, as provision of services, by season and not “from such day to such day”. Annexes to the laws are not expected as a solution and all parties believe that “good will is needed.” Something that, with the division that exists in Spanish football, seems difficult to achieve.LaLiga advised clubs on contractsThe doubts are such that yesterday, in the legal-labor consultancy that LaLiga offers weekly to the clubs, the questions focused on contracts. ERTEs already seem clear. Although the star issue remains behind the return to training and competition on the priority list, it is something that the presidents want to tie for peace of mind, especially for the coaches. To this end, what FIFA says to its 210 federations was clarified at the meeting: “If a contract expires on the original end date of the season, said expiration must be extended until the new end date. If a contract begins on the date of Original start of next season, this start should be postponed until the new date. If there is an overlap, priority will be given to the previous club. ” And even the RFEF regulation in point 116.2: “A footballer may be enrolled in a single club, without the possibility of being discharged and discharged by it in the course of the same season (speaks of season and not specific dates) except in cases of force majeure or regulatory provision. ” Even so, what most reassures most leaders are the words of lawyers like Santi Nebot, who worked five years at AFE and now advises many clubs. In the middle of a drip from ERTE and a reduction in wages, in the midst of controversy between the Federation, LaLiga and AFE over the Audios case and while protocols are formalized and unveiled for the return to normality, there is a problem that is ongoing, entrenched , and that has the world of soccer very tense: what will happen to the contracts that expire on June 30 (almost 400) if it is necessary to extend this season beyond that date. As AS has learned, the solution is closer. Clubs and footballers in Spain have started negotiations, successfully and on a case-by-case basis, to find a pact that satisfies all parties. And they are doing it without the interventions of Thebes and Aganzo, who met again yesterday (today more) and who will simply be able to advise their associates. In several entities, First and Second, agreements have been reached to extend the contracts until the last official match of the 2019-20 academic year is played. In most cases, maintaining current economic conditions and setting a date from which there could be compensation if the championship were to lengthen too long.This is the path that institutions and footballers hope to travel in all corners of the country, while lawyers are deciphering national and international regulations, sports and labor, and interpreting the messages of the RFEF (opts for expansion) and the recommendations of FIFA, which is just that, recommendations, since it has no powers in the labor contracts between club and player. There are four on the tablethree scenarios that worry presidents and for which, according to union sources, “it will be necessary to go contract by contract reading the fine print as there is no single model”, assuming the risk that a footballer may break the deck and stand, the clubs having to resort to the clauses of rescission or to the request for damages. They have the pan by the handle. In fact, there are clubs that have yielded more than expected with the current cuts in the ERTE in case in summer they should ask those affected by the contracts the favor of having to continue, even practically free.One of the cases to study is that of the loan. According to the lawyers consulted, there should be no greater problem with them. They will remain in their current team until the end of the season and will join the next one at the beginning of the next one. This is what FIFA says. The only question that arises is who will pay them in the extension period. It will depend on the cases, because some are currently paid by the club that bought them, in others the entity to which they get a loan does it, and in some more expenses are shared. The plan is that the signed agreement that prevails today will be valid until this campaign is terminated.With the footballers who were bought and end their contract, a distinction must be made. There are those who have an agreement with another club (they can negotiate since last January 1 as free agents) and those who have not yet found accommodation. The former, like those on loan, must finish at their current club and will not be released with their new teammates until the 2020-21 season begins, whenever. And they will not have problems with their emoluments. They will charge what is agreed and even an extra if this course is necessary, even if it is in 13 or 14 payments and not 12, and they also have insured what has been signed with the following club but receiving it in 10 or 11 months instead of one year because the next calendar will have to be cut.last_img
