The Estonian Football Association (EJL) has initiated disciplinary proceedings against Sergei Lepmets, the first-choice goalkeeper of the Estonian men's national football team.
Lepmets announced his unexpected retirement in May, which allowed him to cancel his contract with FCI Levadia. Additionally, Lepmets confirmed his decision to retire and leave the Estonian Premium League to the EJL.
"I am tired of professional football and I don't like the conditions offered by the club," Lepmets told ERR's online news in Russian on May 18.
Lepmets, who found employment at the Municipal Police Department of Tallinn, said: "During the emergency situation I found a good job and the club was opposed to me combining football and other employment. I have to think of my future and there's nothing to do when I cannot do two things at the same time."
