JAKARTA (REUTERS) - World players' union FIFPro have urged the Indonesian soccer authorities to resolve their differences after they were made aware of another case of an unpaid player being hospitalised.

FIFPro said in a statement on Tuesday that French striker Moukwelle Ebanga Sylvain, who played for the Indonesian Premier League club Persewangi Banywangi, had not been paid for nine months and had suffered typhoid and stress.

Moukwelle's plight follows that of Paraguayan Diego Mendieta, who died of a treatable viral infection last month after going four months without being paid.

FIFPro lamented the Indonesia Football Association (PSSI) for their mismanagement in allowing the 32-year-old to die.
