Cruzeiro was ordered to pay R$ 4 million in a lawsuit filed by the attacker Sass in the Labor Court. The sentence was published this Wednesday and clarified that the club did not present a defense and also did not attend a hearing.
Sass activated Cruzeiro na Justia last June. He charged over BRL 8.7 million in wages and overdue image rights, according to the player’s defense, which were not paid in 26 months. It also included payment of fees and FGTS.
In the seventh year, Cruzeiro was ordered to pay differences in salaries from March, May, July to November 2021, in addition to severance pay and fines. The determined value of R$ 4 million. The attacker’s case is also part of the club’s judicial recovery plan.
Sass wore the Cruzeiro shirt in 81 matches and scored 20 goals. He was champion of the 2017 and 2018 Copa do Brasil, in addition to the 2018 and 2019 Campeonato Mineiro. The 28-year-old striker arrived at Raposa in 2017, hired from Botafogo.
After Cruzeiro Serie B’s relegation, he was loaned to Coritiba in 2020. The following year, he played for Martmo, from Portugal, but got injured and chose to terminate the contract to undergo treatment in Brazil. Sass agreed with CSA for the current Srie B dispute and left the Alagoas club last April.
