CAS: Adrian Mutun tulee maksaa Chelsealle yli 17 miljoonan korvaukset
Urheilun kansainvälinen välitystuomioistuin (CAS) on tänään antamallan päätöksellä pitänyt voimassa kansainvälisen jalkapalloliitto FIFA:n riitojenratkaisuinstanssin päätöksen, jolla Chelsean entinen pelaaja Adrian Mutu oli velvoitettu korvaamaan sopimusrikkomuksena Chelsealle 17.173.990 euroa.In his appeal to the CAS, Adrian Mutu sought to set aside the DRC decision and establish that no compensation was due to be paid by him to Chelsea FC. The arbitration was referred to the following panel of CAS arbitrators: Professor Luigi Fumagalli (Italy), President, Jean-Jacques Bertrand (France) and Dr Dirk-Reiner Martens (Germany). The parties, their witnesses and their legal representatives were heard by the Panel at a hearing held at the CAS Court Office in Lausanne on 7 May 2009.
The CAS Panel concluded that the appeal brought by the player was to be dismissed and the measure of damages, as awarded by the DRC, was to be confirmed. Adrian Mutu must therefore pay EUR 17’173’990 to Chelsea FC.
