The Club claims that the charge is not valid, due to payments already made and the lack of presentation of tax coupons
Midfielder Douglas Augusto, who defended Corinthians in the 2019 and 2020 seasons, is asking for R$ 1.3 million for non-payment of amounts referring to the midfielder’s image rights at the time of the bond. On the other hand, the Club requested the suspensive effect of the debt in court.
Timão’s legal department claims that ‘failure to grant the suspensive effect may cause irreparable damage to the club, which has several obligations, such as the payment of 1,000 employees, athletes, service providers, taxes, etc.‘, as a justification for the judicial request.
Still in the administration of President Andrés Sanchez, the debt in question already had an agreement, carried out in October 2020, when Timão signed a commitment to settle the amount in 12 installments of R$ 144,041.66. However, the Club paid only the first and did not make the rest of the bank transfers.
With that, the midfielder filed a lawsuit, demanding the payment of R$ 1,341,487.29, the amount of the debt added to the fees of his lawyers in 10% of the total value of the case. Based on the action, Judge Luis Fernando Nardelli, of the 3rd Civil Court of the Regional Court of Tatuapé, ordered Corinthians to deposit 30% of the debt, with the prerogative of dividing the remaining debt in up to six monthly installments.
The Timão department claimed that the charge, under the terms presented by Douglas, is not valid, since, according to the signed contract, Douglas should issue and present to the Club the invoices for each of the 12 installments signed between the parties. .
On the other hand, representatives of the steering wheel presented Corinthians with the notes for the months of February, March and April, and then interrupted the broadcasts due to the lack of payment. In this way, Corinthians’ legal group states that the process concerns only the three outstanding installments, and not the total debt.
