CELTIC’S first round Champions League opponents FK Sarajevo have reportedly gone on strike and have refused to go on their pre-season training camp because they haven’t been paid in a month.
The club gets set to welcome Celtic to Bosnia in July but their preparations could be thrown into disarray with this bizarre development.
A Bosnian football account has posted the story with the players seemingly unhappy with the club.
Bosnia-Herzegovina champion FK Sarajevo should have travelled to a pre season camp today but that was cancelled due to the players refusing going. They haven't received wages in months.

FK Sarajevo are the Bosnian Champions and are looking to cause a major upset by taking on Celtic in the Champions League.
This news won’t affect anyone at Celtic who will still prepare for this game as professionally as possible. Celtic have their own worries and prep to be getting on with.
The Sarajevo players may miss out on their training camp but surely they wouldn’t stay on strike for a European match of this ilk. We await to see what unfolds.
