Albert Riera ‘activated’ his lawyer, according to Igor Barišić: ‘Albert Riera hasn’t even started proceedings against Olimpija yet’
At Monday’s press conference NK Olimpija Ljubljana the club’s business director Igor Barišić also spoke about the club’s financial situation. Among other things, he pointed out that Olimpija has never been healthier in this respect in its history. He added that he had reached an agreement on the debt to Dino Skender and mentioned another former Dragons coach. Albert Riera is said to have taken FIFA to court after parting ways with Olimpija over the alleged debt, but Igor Barišić claims that FIFA has sided with Olimpija.
Now Blaž Tomažin Bolcar, the lawyer of Albert Riera, the new Bordeaux coach, has come forward and claims that Barišić was not telling the truth. “UEFA and FIFA have not issued any decision in the case of Alberto Riera and NK Olimpija Ljubljana, as no proceedings have been brought before UEFA or FIFA. What is more, Albert Riera has not even initiated proceedings against NK Olimpija Ljubljana yet, so the statement of the director Igor Barišič is misleading and untrue. Albert Riera regrets that the club continues to publish untruths about him after his departure,” said Blaž Tomažin Bolcar for SportKlub.
