Players told ‘most’ Romanian clubs can’t pay wages

Football players around the world have been warned against

moving to Romania because most clubs there struggle to pay

salaries.

International players’ union FIFPro has issued advice that ”the

majority” of clubs in Romania’s top three divisions are in

financial trouble.

FIFPro is warning that Romanian clubs look abroad for players

”who are ignorant of this situation.”

It says players risk ”sign(ing) a contract with a bankrupt club

or a club that soon will no longer be able to pay.”

FIFPro says its member union in Romania can advise agents which

clubs are financially sound.

A total of 148 foreigners, including 28 Brazilians, have

contracts with Romania’s 18 top-tier teams this season, according

to a Neuchatel University study in Switzerland.
