The Avellaneda club has 45 days to disburse this sum of money, and if it does not do so it will be inhibited again.


Independiente received a new harsh judicial setback, since it was confirmed today that the Sports Arbitration Court (TAS) ruled in favor of Gastón Silva and the Avellaneda entity must pay more than US$2 million to the footballer that he complained to FIFA.

The ruling was announced this morning and what the TAS was to reject the appeal that Independiente had made on April 18 of last year that he sought not to pay this amount to Silva.

With this new news, things got worse for the Avellaneda club, since, in addition to paying the player what he claimed, interest was added that increased the figure to more than US$2 million.

Independent must disburse US$2,276,000which are the result of the 1,650,000 that Silva initially claimed, 296,000 in interest that ran from 2022 and 330,000 in fines for not having made the initial payment.

From now on, the club has 45 days to pay the footballer the entire sum, since, if he does not do so, he will be inhibited for the next transfer market.

Silva had arrived at the Avellaneda entity in 2017 from Torino in Italy and left in 2020 due to lack of payment. Then, he made the aforementioned claim before FIFA and several years later it was confirmed that the footballer will receive a million-dollar sum for this.

During his time at Independiente, the Uruguayan played a total of 74 games in which he scored two goals and provided three assists. In addition, he was a key part of Ariel Holan’s team that became champion of the 2017 Copa Sudamericana at the Maracaná and the 2018 Suruga Bank Cup.
