Rabotnichki has asked a court that Orduspor pay the remaining transfer fee that is still owed to the Macedonian club for the transfer of Muarem Muarem, dating back several years.
The story dates back prior to the start of the 2010-11 season in Turkey’s second division. Rabotnichki transferred Muarem to Orduspor where he completed just one season before he was back with Rabotnichki prior to the 2011-12 season. However, Rabotnichki claims that it has not received the complete transfer fee for Muarem, so they decided to initiate court proceedings to demand full payment from Orduspor. Otherwise, they asked the court to have Orduspor go into foreclosure.
Orduspor, meanwhile, released a statement late Saturday that stated that the two teams agreed in principle to reduce Muarem’s transfer fee in half after the player spent just one season in Turkey, before he returned to Rabotnichki prior to the 2011-12 season. As a reminder, the original contract between Muarem and Orduspor was for 3 years. Furthermore, Orduspor noted that after the transfer fee was agreed to be cut in half, now just an additional 50,000 Euros are at stake, but that amount is still being contested by the two clubs in court where an appeal process has yet to be finalized.
