MTS vehemently condemns HC Csikszereda’s attitude
The Ministry of Youth and Sports (MTS) has vehemently condemned HC Csikszereda’s attitude. The club’s refusal to allow its players to answer the call-up to the national team endangers the goal that the Romanian Ice Hockey Federation had set for the world cup: Romania’s presence in the second heat. Following the unjustified refusal of HC Csikszereda Miercurea Ciuc players to answer the call-up to the national ice hockey team that takes part in the World Cup in Torun, Minister Monica Iacob-Ridzi reacted to the club leaders’ unexplainable decision, a communiqué reads. The Ministry of Youth and Sport (MTS) has asked the Romanian Ice Hockey Federation to initiate the procedures for sanctioning the players and leaders of HC Csikszereda. A day before the players were scheduled to come to the national team, HC Csikszereda’s leadership raised several conditions in return for allowing the 12 players to take part in the competition. The conditions consisted of the Romanian Ice Hockey Federation offering the players wages equal to those received at the club during the training stages and the final tournament and of insuring them against injuries at a value set by the club.
