Sergey Sosnovski: Belarusian football players go where they can earn $2,000

The country's three-time champion and winner of the Belarusian Cup complains about low wages of sportsmen.
Sergey Sosnovski, a participant of the Champions League and a former player of the national team, is an experienced player and a brave defender. He gave an interview to Pressball before leaving for a training camp in Antalya.
“We had received wages regularly until May. Then we faced delays. It's not awful if delays are short. We won the Belarusian Cup and learnt that wages would be cut to 7 million rubles. It turned out that salaries depend on last year's results of FC Minsk.
We have to live in accordance with these laws. But logic is sometimes unclear. It turns out that outsiders earn only 3 million? But no one will come to us for a salary of $1,000! Players will soon try to go to any place where they can have $2,000. Uzbekistan? It used to be funny, but it's not funny any more.
Why play for 4 million if you can earn 10 with your computer? Football players train since childhood. Many don't have normal childhood. Moreover, there's a risk of ruining your health,” he says.
