Club Licensing Committee Clears the Majority, But Ex-Players Cause Friction

With the exception of three exceptions, everyone received the green light from the licensing committee on Monday. A number of striking findings were noted in the accompanying reports. Many top clubs are apparently at odds with their ex-players.

The legal department is especially busy in Ghent. For example, the Buffaloes found an agreement with Ilombe Mboyo, Hannes Van der Bruggen and Roman Yaremchuk, but made no progress in the files of Adriano Duarte, Adnan Custovic, Stef Wils, Mbaye Leye, Roy Myrie and Mustapha Oussalah.

Disputes with ex-players

Antwerp, which was fined 50 thousand euros, apparently settled disputes with both Steven Defour and Laszlo Bölöni. The conviction in the case with Brian Priske would not be a cause for concern, nor would the proceedings with Kevin Mirallas that are still ongoing.

Anderlecht in turn appealed against the verdict in the case with Lukasz Teodorczyk. In addition, there is a dispute regarding the applied exemption for Sambi Lokonga in the withholding tax for the 2021 tax year and a procedure with SK Beveren regarding Isaac Kiese Thelin.

Club is waiting for money

Genk had a dispute with Celta de Vigo regarding Victory Beniangba, but that is considered settled now that the teams have reached a mutual settlement. Furthermore, Limburgers do not have to worry about the dispute regarding legal entity tax for the non-profit organization for the time being.

Finally, Club Brugge is almost the only one of the traditional top clubs that currently has no problems with former employees. Blauw-Zwart is still waiting for money from the exasperated KV Oostende, which has still not deposited the third part of the payment for Daniel Pérez into the Bruges account.
