MOSCOW (AP) - A soccer player from Montenegro who fell out of favor with his Russian club says he was beaten into terminating his contract.

Nikola Nikezic played for Kuban Krasnodar in the Russian Premier League. He has written to the governing bodies of European and international soccer, contending he was beaten March 7 by two men in an office at the club’s headquarters in Krasnodar in southern Russia.

Nikezic also says in a video message on a website that the men had guns and threatened to “make an invalid” out of him. He says he signed a contract termination out of fear for his life.

The 29-year-old forward says he has been told he’s not wanted at Kuban. The team began its league season Sunday, losing 2-0 to Rubin Kazan.
