FIFPro warns footballers about joining clubs in Cyprus, Greece and Turkey
LONDON (REUTERS) - Professional footballers have been warned by the world players' union FIFPro to think twice before signing to play for clubs in Cyprus, Greece or Turkey.
Players were advised to be especially wary of clubs who were not playing in European competition, with FIFPro saying many of those teams have failed to keep their promises.
"FIFPro wants to caution players and unions about the bad behaviour of clubs in Cyprus, Greece and Turkey," said the Dutch-based organisation in a statement.
"Cyprus has for years occupied the first position, by a wide margin, as regards the number of disputes submitted to Fifa's dispute resolution chamber (DRC), while Greece and Turkey are vying for second position.
