Alves and Sao Paulo split over unpaid wage row

Brazilian side Sao Paulo have parted company with Dani Alves after the veteran

defender skipped training on Friday in protest over unpaid wages, reports AFP. “We have made the decision and we have informed (manager) Hernan Crespo, that Daniel Alves will no longer be part of the team,” the side’s sporting director Carlos Belmonte announced on Twitter. “Sao Paulo is bigger than one man,” he insisted. The former Barcelona, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain player’s advisers told the club his training boycott would continue until his outstanding salary was paid,

Belmonte revealed. According to reports in the local press Alves, 38, is owed 11

million reais (almost 1.8 million euros).
