Vest o štrajku čačanskih fudbalera pročula se i van granica Srbije i našla se u evropskim medijima. Kao što to inače biva, dobar glas se čuje daleko, a loš još dalje. Pa je tako i britanski Independent pisao o tome da čačanski gradonačelnik ne želi da primi na razgovor fudbalere koji štrajkuju ispred zgrade gradske uprave, koje podržava veliki fudbalski as Nemanja Matić.
The strike involves around 25 players, according to Serbian media, from the club FC Borac, which was disbanded owing unpaid wages before its owners bought another local club and renamed it FC Borac 1926.
Serbian Matic, one of the country’s most popular internationals, rallied behind the striking players in a message on the Facebook page of global players’ union FIFPRO.
– I want to say that you are not alone, I am with all of you,– the 31-year-old former Chelsea midfielder said.
The new club FC Borac 1926 could not be contacted for comment.
FIFPRO said Borac was disbanded having run into financial difficulties after dropping down the Serbian league.
The club’s owners, however, then bought another local team FK Provo, and changed its name to FC Borac 1926.
Vest o štrajku fudbalera FK Borac našla se i u programu TV Indija.
Vest su objavili i mediji u Švedskoj, Poljskoj, Francuskoj i Nemačkoj.
