Inter Milan defender Stefan de Vrij has emerged victorious in the legal battle against his former agency SEG.

A court in Amsterdam ruled in favor of the 32-year-old, forcing his former representatives to reimburse him with a figure worth 4.75 million euros.

SEG negotiated with Inter on behalf of the player in the past, but then charged him with commissions he deemed excessive.

Therefore, the former Lazio man celebrated his courtroom victory, hoping that this case could also serve other players.

“I’m very happy that, for the second time. the Dutch court has confirmed that I was right in my case against SEG,” posted the Netherlands international on Instagram via FcInterNews.

“The court has even increased the penalty against SEG.”

“The court decided the following: First, SEG effectively acted as my representative in the contract negotiations with Inter.

“Second, SEG did not inform me about their out-of-proportion commission. And third, I should be compensated for the important financial losses SEG has caused me.”

“I think transparency is very important and I hope this case will help other footballers to get more control over their careers.”

After parting ways with SEG, De Vrij signed with famous Italian football agent Federico Pastorello. The latter worked on extending his contract with the Nerazzurri last summer.

The Dutchman joined Inter in the summer of 2018 and his current deal is valid until June 2025.

This season, he has so far made 29 appearances across all competitions, contributing with one goal in the process.

De Vrij picked up an injury while on international duty last month. Therefore, he had to skip the club’s previous two outings against Empoli and Udinese.

Nevertheless, the defender is pushing to make his return to action this weekend against Cagliari.
