Angers’ dark season continues. Already 20th in Ligue 1 and promised to Ligue 2, the Anjou club was imposed sanctions by the FIFA dispute resolution chamber on Thursday, as revealed West France.
The dispute concerns the transfer of defender Ilyes Chetti from ES Tunis to SCO last summer. In a decision from FIFA’s Dispute Resolution Chamber published on Thursday, it is stated that Angers are banned from registering new players for the next two registration periods.
4 suspension matches for the player… who is already laid off
The body also estimates that the player must pay 970,000 euros to the Tunisian club “as compensation for breach of contract without just cause, plus annual interest at the rate of 5% from September 30, 2022 until the date of full payment”.
Chetti also receives a 4-match suspension – which shouldn’t be a problem for the SCO, however, since he is no longer part of the sporting plans: he was laid off for a month by the club, after having summer sentenced on April 6 to a 4-month suspended prison sentence for acts of sexual ***ault committed on December 4 in an Angevin nightclub.
On the subject, Angers SCO specifies: “The club, not considering itself responsible for the termination of the contract prior to the hiring of the player Ilyes Chetti, has decided to appeal this decision to the CAS. »
