Wednesday, 16 March 2022 – Wout Van Aert, one of Belgium’s most famous cyclists, has been in the spotlight for many years now, but not only for his athletic successes. In 2018, the rider terminated his ongoing contract with his then employer for just cause. A legal battle ensued around the validity of that just cause. ATFIELD lawyers Niels Verborgh and Sven Demeulemeester have written an article on this case, which has been published in VSZ (Voetbal- & Sportjuridische Zaken) magazine, 2022/nr.1.
