Player says beaten into breaking Russian contract

A Montenegrin striker who fell out of favor with his Russian Premier League club Kuban Krasnodar says he was beaten into terminating his contract.
Nikola Nikezic has written to UEFA and FIFA claiming he was beaten on March 7 by two men in an office at the club's headquarters in Krasnodar in southern Russia.
A copy of the letter was posted on Tuesday on the website of the union of Russian footballers and coaches, along with a video message by Nikezic, who says the two men who beat him had guns and threatened to "make an invalid" out of him.
He says he signed a contract termination out of fear for his life.
The 29-year-old forward says he has been told he's not wanted at Kuban, which began its league season on Sunday with a 2-0 home loss to Rubin Kazan.
