Vendor is under no obligation to accept the
player whose contract
was suspended by his
club while he was treat-
ed for cancer has been
awarded "moral dam-
ages" of around
The Court of Arbitra-
tion for Sport ruled in
favor of Uruguayan
Ariosa against the
Olimpia club of Paraguay.
"We see this as a great
result," said Alexandra
Gomez, a lawyer for the
global players union FIF-
Pro. "CAS stated that the
club was not responsible
for the condition of the
player, but it was respon-
sible for its own response
to this situation."
The court said Olimpia
caused Ariosa "angst and
insecurity" when it sus-
pended his five-year con-
tract in 2013 while he
py in Uruguay.
CAS awarded Ariosa
seven per cent of the total
contract value as "moral
damages" for the club
acting in bad faith.
Ariosa, whose salary
went unpaid for months
even before his diagnosis,
also got sporting com-
pensation of around
$90,000 ordered by CAS.
Both Ariosa and
Olimpia appealed to the
sports court after Fifa
ruled last year that his
contract should be paid
The Fifa disputes panel
said Ariosa had been
right to terminate his
contract after the club
stopped his pay.
Still, the Fifa panel had
denied the player s
request for compensation
and did not recognise his
rights in Paraguayan
national law to a 13th
month salary for each
year of his contract.

PRAGUE---Czech Republic captain Tomas Rosicky
could miss European Championship qualifiers
against Kazakhstan and Latvia in September.
The Arsenal midfielder injured his knee in June in
another Euro 2016 qualifying match against Iceland

Czech football federation head Miroslav Pelta said

that everything is getting better but time is against
us."Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said last week
that Rosicky was "on a progressive recovery."

GLASGOW---Hearts went top of the Scottish league
yesterday after Celtic conceded a late penalty in a
2--2 draw against Kilmarnock.
Hearts beat Motherwell 2--0 for its third win in
three games and is now two points ahead of defending
champion Celtic, which dropped its first points after
Kallum Higginbotham equalised for Kilmarnock from
the spot in the 88th minute.
Celtic had taken the lead through Leigh Griffiths
after just three minutes before Josh Magennis leveled
for the host just before halftime. But Celtic was back
in front after 55 minutes when Nir Bitton unleashed
a stunning 30-yard shot into the top corner.
That looked to be enough for the visitors until
Emilio Izaguirre brought down Greg Kiltie in the area
and Higginbotham stepped up to equalise with a
cheeky chipped penalty.
In the night s other game, Inverness played out a
0--0 draw with Partick. (AP)

involved in a fistfight at a match in
The Central American nation s
football federation said in a statement
that Wanchope had decided to "step
aside" a day after the incident.
Wanchope was watching Costa
Rica s Under-23 team play a pre-
Olympic match Tuesday night when
the scuffle broke out.
Video of the incident shows Wan-
chope angrily opening a gate to the
field and shoving a youth standing
behind it, while apparently receiving
a shove from a man standing beside
the gate. Wanchope then turns and
punches the man, who kicks and hits
him before police intervene.
Local news reports indicated the
coach was irritated at refereeing of
the match, which ended in a scoreless
