CAS rendered a decision in favor of Kuchuk in dispute with FC Lokomotiv

On 28 January 2016 Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) rendered a decision in case between FC Lokomotiv and the coach L.S. Kuchuk.

To remind, FC Lokomotiv was not satisfied with the RFU Players Status Committee decision and brought a claim to the CAS. The hearing was held in Swiss court on 7 October 2015.

The CAS fully dismissed the claim of the Club, and confirmed the RFU Committee decision, and thus, stated that FC Lokomotiv unlawfully terminated the contract with the coach and must pay compensation in this respect. The CAS decision is in force from its notification.

The interests of L.S. Kuchuk were represented by the Lawyers of Legal Sport and Gradev Sports, members of International Football Lawyers Association SILA.
