FIFA Ban Chelsea From Signing Players Until 2011

Post by Quiver on Thu Sep 03, 2009 10:29 am

Chelsea have been found guilty of breaking rules by inducing a player to break his contract and as a result have been banned from signing players until 2011.

The breach of rules revolves around former Lens player Gael Kakuta who was adjudged to have breached his contract with the French club when he signed for Chelsea.

FIFA published a statement on their own website that announced the decision of their Dispute Resolution Chamber which announced huge punishments for both the club and player.

The statement read, "The DRC found that the player had indeed breached a contract signed with the French club. Equally, the DRC deemed it to be established that the English club induced the player to such a breach.

"As a result the player was condemned to pay compensation in the amount of EUR 780,000, for which the club, Chelsea, are jointly and severally liable, and sporting sanctions were imposed on both the player and Chelsea in accordance with art. 17 par. 3 and 4 of the Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players.

"A restriction of four months on his eligibility to play in official matches has been imposed on Kakuta. Chelsea are banned from registering any new players, either nationally or internationally, for the two next entire and consecutive registration periods following the notification of the present decision.

"Furthermore, the club, Chelsea, have to pay Lens training compensation in the amount of EUR 130,000."

The Premier League outfit will not be able to sign any players until January 2011 and the player himself, who is yet to feature in the first team, has also received a ban of four months.

Kakuta, just eighteen-years-old was voted Chelsea's Academy Scholar of the Year by staff and peers, and enjoyed an eye-catching first year after signing on with the Blues.

Chelsea seek transfer ban freeze

Post by Fabregas04 on Fri Oct 23, 2009 10:25 am

The Court of Arbitration for Sport (Cas) has confirmed that Chelsea want their Fifa transfer ban suspended until a decision on their appeal is made.

The club cannot sign players until 2011 as Fifa ruled they induced Gael Kakuta to break his Lens contract in 2007.

"A decision concerning the request (to suspend the ban) is likely to be issued at the beginning of November," said a statement on the Cas website.

If Cas grants Chelsea's request, the Blues could sign players in January.

Chelsea will know whether their ban has been suspended by early November, well ahead of the next transfer window, but Cas have still to set a date to hear the original appeal itself.

Under the terms of the Fifa punishment, French teenager Kakuta must pay compensation of 780,000 euros (£710,000), for which Chelsea are "jointly and severally liable".

Chelsea must also pay Lens "training compensation" of 130,000 euros (£118,000).
