Brussels:

The G-14 association of Europe's major soccer clubs has said it has no intention of suing FIFA for past damages over player injuries sustained during international duty. G-14 General Manager Thomas Kurth denied claims by UEFA that the group is seeking $1.04 billion for losses incurred from injuries during international duty over the past decade. A commercial court in Belgium's Charleroi held a hearing on the issue on Monday. Kurth said G-14 gave the $1.04 billion figure in court as an estimate only after FIFA claimed the group had no claim to damages. However, the group will keep up a legal challenge to help protect clubs in the future. G-14 said it will focus on brokering new rules to give clubs a bigger say in the running of the game, including the World Cup and other major tournaments and the international match calendar. (AP)
