Ex-Arsenal star Eduardo facing £630,000 legal action from agent

Former Arsenal striker Eduardo da Silva has seen an agent's dispute threaten his financial security.

The Daily Mail says Eduardo faces having his house and car seized in Croatia over a legal dispute with his former agent.

The Brazil-born forward has until the end of the month to prevent a court order in Zagreb from also freezing his bank account.

Zdravko Mamic, who is also the executive vice-president of Eduardo's former club Dinamo Zagreb, is suing the 28-year-old for £630,000 - which could rise to more than £900,000 with interest - over an agreement signed in 2001.

Mamic claims he is entitled to 20 per cent of the player's earnings but has not received payment since Eduardo moved from Dinamo to Arsenal in 2007.

Eduardo claims the agreement is not valid, in part because he did not understand Croatian when he signed the contract with Mamic on his 18th birthday.
