CHELSEA BANNED FROM TRANSFERS

Friends Of Liverpool

Chelsea have been banned from making any transfers by FIFA until 2011.
In an extraordinary move, they announced that former Lens player Gail Kakuta was ‘induced’ into breaking his contract to join the chavs in 2007.
The player himself, still in his teens, has been banned from playing football and ordered to pay nearly £700,000 while Chelsea themselves have to pay £114,000 to Lens.
With an ageing squad this is good news for Liverpool fans, as title rivals, this will weaken their challenge in future.
They are, of course, to appeal.
