Salo lets Modo down - negotiates with Frölunda
A big fight has broken loose between Tommy Salo and Modo Hockey. The cause is that Salo last season broke a two year contract with the team because he felt he was finished as an artist.
Now, the retired hockey player has started to negotiate with Frölunda.
- I've been honest the whole time, says Tommy Salo about the deal.
An honesty Modo's director of sports Bengt Hedin doesn't think much of.
- He got a green light to break the two year contract with us because he couldn't support himself playing hockey anymore. We will not accept getting nothing out of this, he says.
Bengt Hedin feels very surprised by Tommy Salo's behaviour and demands that Frölunda shall compensate Modo economically because the world famous goalie is registred with the team till 2006.
- I can see why Modo are upset, but I moved to Gothenburg and the hockey abstinence became stronger, says Tommy Salo about why he's strongly considering a record early comeback.
