• Josh Simpson terminates contract with Manisaspor

      Turkish side Manisaspor announced on its website that Canadian attacker Josh Simpson has terminated his contract with the club.

      The issue seems to be over unpaid wages, with Simpson claiming that Manisaspor owes him money while the club denied this and has threatened to initiate legal action against the player for an unlawful breach of contract.

      The 28-year-old led the side in scoring last season, and most recently struck for Manisaspor just yesterday in a 2-1 loss to Fenerbahce. Fellow Canadian international Mike Klukowski is still with the club.

        What the hell is going on in Turkey?? At first it seemed it was a great place for our Canadian internationals to go, but with Sivasspor, and now Manisaspor, both having unpaid wage claims put against them by our boys, it seems Turkey is quickly becoming a place to avoid. I hope Josh finds his way to a club asap, we need him to be primed for WCQ.

        Kaiserslautern fans are already hoping to get him back. However, I think it is dangerous to sign a player who broke with his former club under such unknown circumstances. You can quickly get involved in an expensive legal action.
