Argentine players agree to end strike

IANS logoIANS 09-03-2017

The first division championship will restart when Velez Sarsfield host Estudiantes on Thursday, Xinhua news agency reported.

The Argentine government last week agreed to pay the clubs $22.7 million to compensate for a cancelled television rights contract.

But the union said it was not enough to pay the players, some of whom are owed up to five months of wages.

The Argentina Football Association and union chiefs will meet government officials in the coming days to finalise details of a new salary deal, media reports said.
