Sports Integrity Briefs – 9 August 2019

KV Mechelen has said that it will lodge a complaint with FIFA alleging unilateral breach of contract by its goalkeeper, Michaël Verrips. ‘After many promises from the entourage of Michaël Verrips, KV Mechelen only received a concrete offer from Sheffield United on Wednesday evening, one day before the close of the Premier League transfer window’, read a statement. ‘Despite contact with Sheffield United, the English club suddenly withdrew its bid on Thursday afternoon only to announce him as a free transfer signing a few hours later’. The Belgian club said that it would take the ‘necessary steps’ with FIFA. It is understood that Verrips argues his contract is null and void, due to KV Mechelen being banned from the Europa League and the Belgian Cup after being implicated in a match-fixing investigation.
