Problems with Violence to Soccer Players in Eastern Europe and Russia

SSFC should make the best out of the bad situation with soccer in Eastern Europe and Russia and scout more there. The problem appears especially acute in Greece, where 2/3 of the players are not paid on time and 1/3 are regularly subjected to violent acts. Players from Central and South America have given the same reasons about coming to play in MLS from their leagues, e.g. consistent pay, safety, etc. While Eastern Europe is heavily scouted by Western European teams, that player pool is so large that I'll bet there are some gems to be had. Here is the FIFPro report with all the facts and figures on Eastern Europe.
