Everything will be clear before the end of this year: Young Slovenian forward Jaka Čuber Potočnik eagerly awaits the decision of the CAS
With the end of the year approaching, the moment of truth is also nearing in the form of the final judgment of the resounding dispute between the German Bundesliga club Köln and the Slovenian champions Olimpija. The CAS Court will soon deliver its decision in the dispute, involving the young Slovenian forward Jaka Čuber Potočnik. As previously known, FIFA suspended the teenager for four months, banned Köln from buying new players for two transfer windows, and granted Olimpija an almost symbolic financial compensation of €54,000.
The Ljubljana-based club demanded as much as €2.5 million, thus filing an appeal. Both Köln and Jaka Čuber Potočnik turned to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS). The footballer hopes the playing ban will be lifted, Köln believes they will be able to buy players without restrictions, and Olimpija insists they deserve more than two million euros.
Someone will undoubtedly be disappointed. But who? It will soon be known. As CAS clarified on Friday in response to an inquiry from the Rundschau newspaper, the arbitration ruling is “expected to be announced before the end of 2023” or “as soon as it is finally formulated by the arbitral tribunal“. They added in Lausanne that “the CAS office will not be closed between Christmas and New Year“.
