Cardiff City vs J F Hasselbaink: Stand-Off

Cardiff City vs J F Hasselbaink: Stand-Off

Cardiff City look set for a problem with Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink ready to fight his corner having been effectively released by the club.


Hasselbaink originally had a 1 year extension clasue built into his contract, activated if he played a certain number of games. He did, but apparently this clause was 'verbally waived' between the two parties.


However, Cardiff City appear certain to release Hasselbaink and may be guilty of messing the player around after recently stating his future would only be decided depending on other signings.


Hasselbaink reported for pre-season fitness tests with the rest of the squad with some sources reporting he was turned away.


Either way, Hasselbaink looks certain to leave, with lawyers and the PFA now deciding what compensation package he may be entitled to.

Who exactly was responsible for 1. the 'verbal' waiver and 2. failing to convert the 'verbal' into a 'written'? The answer will tell us who should be going through the door marked EXIT.

It would be highly unproffessional for a 'verbal' not to become 'written'. I also would have though Jimmy had more pride than to argue for money if he knows he's not going to get in the team - he clearly still loves playing!

I can remember raising some queries and alarm on this site after the Cup Final with JFH being so quick to make comments about how he would certainly be playing for the City next season .. being a very competent business man he was clearly setting out his position and in so doing acknowledging that there might be a 'problem' .. and here it is!

I wouldn;t want to get in an ugly spat with Jimmy. He knows ugly when he sees it.
