Man City Avoid Transfer Ban Despite Admitting Breach Of FIFA Regulations

14 Août, 2019, 06:00 | Auteur: Adelaide Bullion
  • FIFA has been investigating City's international transfers for several years

Manchester City have avoided a transfer ban after Federation Internationale de Football Association found the Premier League club guilty of falling foul of regulations regarding the global transfer and registration of players under the age of 18.

The Premier League giants have instead been fined £315,000 for breaking the rules.

FIFA's disciplinary committee has punished Manchester City for worldwide transfers of underage players, but the English side have escaped being hit with a transfer ban.

Both players told Danish media that they were signed and had played for the club's youth teams before turning 18, which is against FIFA's legislation.

The club issued a statement in response to the sanction, accepting responsibility.

"Manchester City FC was found to have breached, among others, article 19 of the Fifa Regulations on the status and transfer of players".

"All of the breaches occurred before December 2016 when guidance on the interpretation of the provisions was issued, since which date Manchester City has been fully compliant".

Chelsea were given a two-window transfer ban and were "astonished" when FIFA's Appeals Committee refused to suspend the sanction when the Blues appealed against the punishment.

UEFA is focusing on another area and investigating whether City has breached Financial Fair Play rules.

However, several news outlets, including the Telegraph have reported on Tuesday that City will not be receiving a transfer ban despite admitting to breaching regulations relating to the global transfer and registration of under-18 players.

The player's parents move to the country in which the new club is located for non-footballing reasons.

In June the Blues, who were not allowed to make any signings in the summer transfer window, announced they were taking their appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport, having failed with their first appeal to Federation Internationale de Football Association. The club has been fined more than $370,000 as a result.

City also recruited Pedro Pozzo from sister-club Girona, Zack Steffan from Columbus Crew, Ryotaro Meshino from Gamba Osaka, and they also re-signed left-back Angelino from PSV Eindhoven.
