MFA Complaints Board orders Jurgen Borg to pay Hibernians €14,936

The MFA Complaints Board ordered goalkeeper Jurgen Borg to pay Hibernians FC €14,936 as compensation after he left the club during season 2017/18.

The case dates back to season 2017/18 when Jurgen Borg, who was on the books of Hibernians FC, sought the release from the club although he was still under contract but the Paolites rejected his request. He took the case to the Court of Arbitration for Sport and in January 2018, the CAS ruled in favour of the player and ordered the Malta Football Association to allow Borg to register for another club.

In January 2018, Jurgen Borg joined Senglea Athletic. Hibernians received compensation amounting to €9,000 from Senglea.

However Hibernians sought further compensation from the player in front of the MFA Complaints Board.

In a statement, the Malta Football Players Association said that while it positively notes that the club’s original request for damages amounting to about €35,000, has been drastically reduced to €14,000, the MFPA will be appealing this decision.

Jurgen Borg is currently playing for First Division side Zebbug Rangers, on loan from Gzira United.
