Anselmo de Moraes, the Brazilian professional in the Saudi Al-Wehda ranks, threatened his club Al-Wehda to leave the club and terminate his professional contract, in the event that his three-month arrears were not paid.
Al-Wehda‘s management received a letter from the Brazilian player’s agent requesting that the late salaries be paid, which amount to $ 1.2 million, equivalent to 4.5 million Saudi riyals.
Anselmo had joined the Knights of Mecca in June 2018 from the Brazilian club Internacional, before Al-Wehda management renewed his contract in May so that his contract with the team would expire at the end of the 2024 season.
The International Federation of Football Associations gives players the freedom to unilaterally terminate the contract in the event that he does not receive his financial dues, for a legitimate reason, as Brazilian player Anselmo Moraes receives 3 million dollars per season with Al-Wehda.
Al-Wehda club suffers from a severe financial crisis, as it contributed to the failure of local players in the team to receive their monthly salaries for a period of 5 months.
