The Latest on the effects of the coronavirus outbreak on sports around the world:
Global soccer union FIFPro says seven-time Slovakian champion Zilina is opting for bankruptcy after offering players a “take it or leave it” 80% pay cut.
FIFPro says it believes Zilina is the first European club to go into liquidation since the coronavirus outbreak.
The union says Zilina “refused to negotiate with the (Slovak) player union.”
The move follows the club selling 20-year-old forward Róbert Boženík to Feyenoord in January for a reported fee of about 4.5 million euros ($4.9 million).
