The principal position of the Donetsk club
CEO Miner Sergei Palkin appealed to the clubs that intend to sign the players of the Donetsk team for free. The functionary noted that the miners are ready to go to court.
“I would like to send a message to those clubs who are trying to sign our players without transfer fees. Shakhtar will file unjust enrichment claims against players or clubs that benefited financially. We believe that these clubs, which enrich themselves at the expense of Shakhtar, will be required to pay compensation. These clubs need to understand what they are doing when they decide to sign our players,” Palkin said.
Also, Shakhtar CEO commented on the possible transfer of the winger Solomon’s Manor V Tottenham.
“I contacted Solomon and his agent and invited him back to our club. I said ‘you can play all the Champions League games, you will be in the starting lineup’ but he doesn’t want to move and I believe he will stay in England. I don’t know where he will go. If he goes to Tottenham, then we will deal with Tottenham in court in this case. It all comes down to a simple situation – unjust enrichment.”
Last summer, Solomon moved to Fulham on loan. Summer residents intend to keep the winger in the squad for next season. A number of other clubs are also interested in the player’s services, including Tottenham.
FIFA has extended until the summer of 2024 a rule allowing foreign players and coaches to unilaterally terminate contracts with Ukrainian and Russian clubs due to the war. Solomon’s agreement with Shakhtar expires in December 2023.
