Comments of Mikhail Prokopets for Championat.com

Leeds United FC, which loaned RB Leipzig forward Jean-Kévin Augustin last winter and where he played just three matches in February after spending a total of 48 minutes on the pitch, refused to buy the player out. However, a clause in the contract may force them to do so. Now the clubs have entered into a dispute that could lead to a court trial. “Championat.com” asked Mikhail Prokopets, partner at SILA International Lawyers, for a comment on this case: https://www.championat.com/football/article-4089459-lejpcig-trebuet-chtoby-lids-vykupil-igroka-za-21-mln-evro-on-provjol-tolko-tri-matcha.html
