Sporting CP has not yet paid the compensation of €3 million to Sinisa Mihajlovic for wrongful dismissal, so Sinisa Mihajlovic involved UEFA.
Sporting Presidents hired the new Bologna coach at the beginning of June 2018 but was fired less than nine days later following a coup in the boardroom.
In November 2019, the Portuguese club was ordered to pay Mihajlovic €3 million in compensation as he won the lawsuit in the Employment Tribunal.
However, following claims from A Bola that the money had been charged.
Mihajlovic’s lawyers launched a statement saying that this is not valid.
He said “Over the last few months, the club put forward numerous proposals, but what has become clear is that all this was just an attempt to postpone the payment, so I decided to get UEFA involved. Only then did Sporting make a partial payment.
“This behavior is unacceptable and if forced I will go back to UEFA to receive the full sum. I’ll go all the way, even if it means excluding Sporting from UEFA competitions.”
“Sporting Lisbon as of today has not paid me the money that is owed. Since the start of the year, since the club first recognized this debt, they have done nothing but try to delay payment.
