CAS 2015/A/4152 Cerro Porteno v. Roberto Antonio Nanni & FIFA

 

Brief Facts

This case was about an employment-related dispute between a player and a club, in which the club prematurely terminated the employment contract with the player on the basis of his alleged misconduct on several occasions.

After the first employment contracts between the parties expired, the parties simultaneously signed two contracts, i.e. the Sport Employment Contract and the Federative Rights Contract, both valid from 2 August 2012 until 31 July 2014.
