More legal woes for PAOK club

In the latest round of legal action taken against financially troubled soccer club PAOK, a former player, midfielder Giorgos Koutsis, has filed a lawsuit against the Thessaloniki team for unpaid fees he contends are worth -290,000. The case, submitted to a court of first instance, is directed against both the club’s recently appointed new board – an 11-member team of investors led by Nikos Vezyrtzis – as well as two previous club bosses, Petros Kalafatis and Yiannis Youmenos. Other legal wrangles faced by PAOK’s administration include negotiations over unpaid fees between the new board and a lawyer representing six ex-players. Still, PAOK is fourth in Greece’s 16-team Super League just before the season’s halfway mark.
