The training process in the “Zimbru” football club academy has been suspended for an indefinite period. According to its head Marius Codescu, the personnel made such a step forcibly, due to the nonpayment of salary for the last three months.

“This is not a boycott or a strike. We just suspend our activity for an indefinite term. Meanwhile, we keep going to work daily”, stressed Codescu.

Deputy President of the Moldovan Football Federation, head of the Legal Department Ruslan Berzoi explained to Infotag that if the employer does not performs its duties, while employees, coming to work, still do not perform their duties, such situation is regarded as strike according to the Moldovan legislation.

“If the Zimbru football academy employees did not sue the FC leadership to court, this means their desire to settle the conflict outside court. Nobody addressed any complaint to the Football Federation”, Ruslan Berzoi said.

He also explained that if the training process in the academy is conducted on a fee basis, but practice is not taking place, parents have the right to complain about the club.
