Celtic’s Euro Opponents FK Sarajevo See Players Go On Strike Over Unpaid Wages

Celtic‘s Champions League opponents FK Sarajevo have seen their players go on strike over unpaid wages.

The Hoops were drawn against the Bosnian side in the first qualifying round for the 2019/20 edition of the competition earlier this week, with Neil Lennon’s side due to travel for the first-leg away from home on July 9.

However, it seems Sarajevo are in state of absolute chaos, according to the Sun.

Sarajevo – who are managed by ex-Hearts player Husref Musemic were apparently due to travel to Slovenia today for a pre-season training camp and friendlies, but a number of players refused to make the journey because they are still waiting to be paid their latest salary.

Celtic were originally drawn to host Sarajevo at Parkhead in the first-leg but the tie was quickly switched to give the Bosnians more time to sort out their visas – but that now seems to be the least of their problems.

Do you think this will have a major affect on Sarajevo in their tie against Celtic?
