Clearly, the bad news does not stop in Lyon. In a sporting crisis with a sad last place in Ligue 1, the club is also facing off-field problems. And a new one has just appeared. Indeed, the Ukrainian club Shakhtar Donetsk has decided to file a complaint against OL.
On Tuesday morning, FIFA officially received a complaint. The leaders of Shakhthar believe that the loan of Tetê by OL to Leicester, in the 2022 winter transfer window, should not have taken place: “It seems that they have enriched themselves unfairly at the expense of our club. We have filed a complaint with FIFA to obtain the return of this money,” declared the general director of the Ukrainian team, Sergei Palkin, to ESPN. OL will therefore have to explain to FIFA for the loan of the player, who remained at the club for only one year.
The Turkish club Galatasaray, Tetê's new club, is also in the sights of the Ukrainian club: “After Leicester, Tetê joined Galatasaray. We filed a complaint against Tetê, but he united his responsibility with Galatasaray. He also pointed the finger at the player's responsibility: “Due to his absence, we have unilaterally terminated his contract. This means that Tete has effectively terminated his contract. There's a 150 million euro clause in his contract, you know. Now Tetê and Galatasaray are both responsible for this contract termination. We will now see what FIFA's response will be. In any case, Lyon would have done well without this new controversy.
