“The state of affairs in the dispute with Van Aert? In the second half of October, the case normally. I can't seem to deep in detail, but a contract you sign not just,” said Nuyens in Extra-Time Course.
“You have rights and obligations. He has, at the time, with his full mind, a contract for three years was signed. But suddenly, it all went faster than we and than Wout expected to be on the road. And that contract got in the way.”
“If you have the timeline of the whole story look at it, then it is clear that Wout just basically in 2019 like for Jumbo wild races”, he continued Nuyens. “Suddenly he announces that he is in 2020 for Jumbo would go away, that may be, but he had a contract for one and a half season. And he also knew that we had a new sponsor had to search. There was our budget and our license to adopt.”
“The only way to 2019 for the Jumbo ride was to contract with us to break,” says Nuyens. “So he had to or will have to pay damages or an urgent reason to create. And that has happened.”
