Gojko Kacar to return to Berlin


Berlin - The struggle for Serbian midfielder Gojko Kacar is not coming to an end. Following the CAS-verdict of last Wednesday which ruled that Hertha does not have a release obligation for Kacar, the Serbian association was advised accordingly. Since Kacar, however, was in Beijing already, Hertha BSC release the 21-year-old under certain conditions.


The Serbian association, amongst other issues, was supposed to provide insurance for Kacar and the usual release fee. The Serbs had until Friday, 14.00 hrs, to come back in this matter. When there was no reaction, the Serbs by telephone asked for an extension until Saturday, 14.00 hrs.


No reaction


This was granted. However, the Serbs let this period elapse as well. A claim was then prepared on Sunday. During a telephone conversation with Kacar it was found out that he had not been kept appraised of the situation by the Serbian association. He himself then urged the team manager to contact Hertha BSC. Following a few discussions, the Serbian association then communicated that after coordination with a lawyer they would not release the player.


Whereupon Hertha BSC filed its claim with FIFA on Monday evening which includes that Gojko Kacar may not deployed in the Serbs' last match against Argentina on Wednesday. Besides, further legal measures have been reserved in case of non-compliance.
