Hammers fury over Tevez affair

This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.

The furore over the Carlos Tevez third party ownership affair rumbles on, with the revelation of a further intervention by the Football Association.

The FA have further muddied the waters of Sheffield United’s £30million relegation damages claim against West Ham United by interfering in the London club’s attempt to have the case settled by the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

West Ham are furious that the FA have sent an official letter to CAS headquarters in Lausanne stating their position that Soho Square do not recognise the court’s verdict as a final right of appeal.

FIFA have the CAS option on their statute books and strongly recommend that all the national football associations which they represent adopt it too.

But the Daily Mail has revealed a recent FA letter to the CAS stated: “The FA’s position is that any award made by an arbitration tribunal convened under FA Rules is final and binding on the parties. FA Rules do not provide for right of appeal to CAS.”
