Cuban male volleyball star Robertlandy Simón won the case against his former club Sada Cruzeiro Vôlei.



The Italian website volleyball.it revealed that the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) ruled in favor of Simón in his case against Cruzeiro. The legal battle between the Cuban middle blocker and the famous Brazilian club has come to the end.

The 33-year-old player, who wore the jersey of Cruzeiro from 2016 to 2018, had turned to the FIVB to request compensation of 1.6 million Brazilian reals (about 260,000 euros) for “serious breaches of the contract “. At the same time, the club demanded payment of a penalty of the same amount for Simón’s departure to Italy’s Cucine Lube Civitanova and a fine to the SuperLega club in the amount of 100,000 euros, which was also denied.

Although the FIVB ruled in favor of Simon, Cruzeiro have announced that they will appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) as the last resort in these disputes.
