The Mexican team claims that the Brazilian violated the terms of behavior provided for in the contract that the player signed in July 2022, after a quick spell at Barcelona.
On the same day that the preventive detention against Daniel Alves was decreed by the Spanish court, the board of Pumas and the president of the Club, Leopoldo Silva, announced the termination of the player’s contract. The player received an email with the club’s decision and the request for millionaire compensation.
The board of the Mexican team sent a document to the player’s email citing that there are clauses in Daniel’s labor contract that ”penalize involvement in doping cases”, “in any scandal that becomes public” or in “any act that is considered a crime under the law of the country in which it took place“.
The club understands that the Brazilian can be framed in these terms and, therefore, demands financial compensation from the side.
‘Due to the player’s very serious non-compliance, under the terms set out in the fourteenth and fifteenth clauses of the contract, the player is irremediably obliged to reimburse the club with the payment of the indemnity provided for in the fifteenth clause of the contract, in the amount of US$ 5,000,000 (five million American dollars), net, that is, free of any tax or withholding’‘says the club in the email.
In addition, Pumas further states that “it reserves the right to take any and all actions before FIFA and/or in any other relevant and competent jurisdiction, to claim the indemnity, which was agreed under the terms of the fifteenth clause of the contract” .
With the shirt of the Mexican team, Daniel Alves played 13 games, scored four assists and did not score goals. His last match with the team was on 8 January. The 38-year-old winger was heavily criticized by the Mexican fans and has always been far from unanimous.
