The G14 group, representing some of Europe’s richest clubs, has hinted it might drop its complaint to the European Court of Justice in connection with the Abdelmajid Oulmers affair.

Belgian first division club Charleroi went to European court, claiming 616,000 euros in damages from FIFA for the injury of Oulmers while playing a friendly match for Morocco in November 2004.

Oulmers was not able to play for the next seven months. The court is expected to make a decision later this year.

G14 official Thomas Kurth told Sport-Bild magazine that if UEFA president Michel Platini and FIFA boss Joseph Blatter “proposed an acceptable solution by the end of the season, there is a theoretical possibility that the G14 and Charleroi would withdraw their complaint.”

G14 are pushing for players on international duty to be insured, that clubs earn part of the profits from European championship and World Cup finals, and places on both the UEFA and FIFA executive committees.
