AIC confirms Italian footballers set for strike

The Italian Players’ Association (AIC) has confirmed that players have agreed to strike if a deal for a new collective contract with the FIGC is not agreed by the end of the month. The AIC issued a statement this morning warning of imminent strike action: “We will wait until 30 November to announce the date of a matchday strike”.
The disagreement between the AIC and the FIGC has been ongoing for the past few months and in September similar threats of a strike were resolved after an agreement was found between the two parties at the last minute. The bone of contention has been a proposal by clubs to limit the rights of the players to refuse a transfer.
According to the proposal made by the clubs, they want the right to insist a player to accept a transfer to another club of similar standing with the same financial treatment, when there is a year or less remaining on his current contract.
The AIC have maintained that such a rule would curtail the rights of the players and are committed to standing against it. Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
