Vincenzo Nibali confirms: wages and salaries december paid in Bahrain-Merida
Cycling La Gazzetta dello Sport yesterday reported incidents in Bahrain-Merida. The riders and staff saw their salary of december will not be paid. Vincenzo Nibali confirmed that. “And I'm not the only one”, said the Italian leader.

Brent Copeland, the manager of the team, sent his staff an e-mail with an explanation - “because the budget of 2018 is exceeded, could the last wage, not paid” - but set his people right away, don't hesitate: at the end of January will all the arrears to be paid. The prince would personally have the necessary bank guarantees have been given.

Bahrain-Merida is known as a ‘rich’ team, but, strangely enough, turns out it wasn't the first time that the payments are not on time. Insiders say that it is a practical problem - “as a result of administrative red tape” - and that the team has no real financial worries. For that reason knew the UCI also just turn the WorldTourlicentie for 2019. The advent of McLaren as a new co-sponsor must use the payments in the future float let it expire.

Even though everyone remains slow for the employees it is not a great situation. Question is how far Nibali this will take into account in his contract negotiations. He comes out after this season, free on the market: Bahrain-Merida would like two extra years with him further, but the rider negotiates with other teams. “I've already talked with Pull-Segafredo”, confirmed Nibali yesterday.
