    Different case to the main UEFA one, i understand. But still it is hardly a deterrent.

    This is not the bigger UEFA investigation into financial doping.  This was a significantly less serious charge in relation to the signing of 2 African U18 players.  Chelsea have received a ban for the same charge, but in their case it was systematic abuse of the system (29 players), rather than a misinterpretation of the rules, as City argued. City also accepted their culpability and complied with the UEFA investigation, again in contrast to Chelsea. So this is fair enough. Let's hope the right, this time punitive punishment is found in relation to the financial doping charges.

    Chelsea used this guy, who at the time was Man director of a Club here in Norway, to bring two-three Nigerians to Europe. The mentioned Club (who went bankrupt after a while) had a good academy system so they could bring the Nigerians as their own prospoects and roll them into schoolsystem in Norway as well. One of the Nigerians was John Obi Mikel. Since Chelsea, who was behind everything, could not show that they where the real "sponsor" of the Project, there were no written contracts between Lyn (Norwegian Club) and Chelsea at the time. So this guy (a real Crook who has meant nothing but trouble for any club he has been involved with) used the situation With no contracts and flagged John Obi Mikel to Man Utd for 12,5 M pounds instead of letting him for free to Chelsea as the original plan was. That caused a hell of a baluba. I think Chelsea had to buy him from United again, while all of the time they had him on grass over here until he turned old enough to move to UK as a pro.

    Hasn’t the other one gone the same route with a 50 mill fine but no ban?
