Slave In Indonesia

Slave Radowski is not the most famous name in world football but his tale is an increasingly common one in Indonesian football where contracts aren't worth the paper they are written on and despite the duelism mess coming to an end nothing has really improved on the ground.

In an interview with local tabloid Top Skor Slave highlighted the difficulties he has been facing since leaving Persema last month.

He says the club promised to pay his salary and give him a ticket home for 7th April but nothing  has happened leaving him 'confused and stressed (bingung dan pusing).

Someone from the club said 'we understand Radovski's difficulties but the internal finances are not not' which rather begs the question why offer contracts if you have no money?

Short of cash Radovski is getting by on 'bread and noodles' while he waits for some money to get home, just waiting for someone from the club to do something.

He is though being patient despite not having received all his money from last season. He says he doesn't want to go to FIFA because he 'loves this country and its football talent' preferring instead to be patient.

It's an old, old story and one we hear all too often. But no one does a thing about it and when I say no one I mean FIFA down.
