Matuzalem, Zaragoza ordered to pay Shakhtar euro6.8 million

Matuzalem and his club Real Zaragoza must pay euro6.8 million (US$10.3 million) for the Brazilian midfielder's breach of contract with Shakhtar Donetsk.
FIFA said Saturday that it has notified the clubs and player of its decision.
The 27-year-old Matuzalem signed with Spanish team Real Zaragoza in July after breaking his contract with the Ukrainian club.
Matuzalem, who has been injured for much of this season, scored 25 goals in 68 career matches for Shakhtar. He won two league titles and was captain in his final season.
Shakhtar had claimed it was owed euro25 million (US$37.9 million) for the contract breach.
