Nikezić, who played 31 games for Kuban, claims that two men beat him up and threatened him with weapons until he signed the papers terminating the two-year contract he signed in 2010.

He told the Kommersant daily newspaper: "I signed a two-year deal with Kuban in March 2010 and helped the club to win promotion into the Premier League last year.

"However, this year club chiefs said they did not need my services anymore and offered to break the contract. I refused, asking the club for a transfer instead.

"After my refusal two strongmen came into the room and started to beat me badly, threatening me with maiming and demanding that I sign some papers.

"It lasted for about 20 minutes. After that I felt completely exhausted and signed the papers."

The Russian Football Union are investigating the case, but Nikezić said he felt he had to go to FIFA and UEFA with his grievances.

He added: "I decided to go for it, all the way.

"I don't believe in an impartial investigation of the case by the Russian Football Union and after consultations with the Professional Union of Footballers and Coaches, I decided to appeal to FIFA and UEFA.

"It should not be left without consequences, so I will demand sanctions against the club."
