FIFA suspended the sanction over Barcelona
Barcelona finally received the good news that is able to contract players in the next transfer market. The Appeal Committee upheld FIFA’s decision against the club for hiring international underage players.
Larry Mussenden, council president, understood that under the sanctions imposed on the club, the complexity of the matter, the date of the next enrollment period -1 July 2014 – and the fact that the Commission does not appear to be in position to take such a decision, he granted suspensive effect the penalty imposed on the Catalan club.
“The Appeal Committee of the FIFA ensures that the application will be processed in the correct and proper manner and at the same time, all rights of the club will be respected.”
