PAOK under fire over unpaid fees

A former PAOK coach has filed a case with soccer’s international governing body for funds owed to him by the Thessaloniki club, reports said yesterday. Swissman Rolf Fringer, who led PAOK two seasons ago and is reportedly owed 200,000 euros by his former club, has not received any payments over the past two years, despite an agreement, reports said. Reacting to PAOK’s failure to honor its deal, Fringer is now demanding a lump-sum payment of the entire amount. PAOK reportedly also owes a total of 600,0000 euros to two former players. FIFA sanctions, if the issue remains unsolved, could include a deduction of points. At best, PAOK would be barred from using its most recent signings.
