It’s good that the court has not bowed to the pressure of upsetting a big La Liga side which is quite refreshing given the scandals surrounding the game at present.

Football fans have flocked to the social media and website team pages to voice their opinions on the shock appeal rejection by the Court of Arbitration.

The Spanish giants were expected to be successful in their appeal against a 14-month transfer ban after breaching FIFA rules on the transfer of players aged under eighteen. After the appeal from the initial resolution Barca purchased a number of players including Luis Suarez from Liverpool worth a total of £150million but will now need to make do with their crop of superstars whilst serving the ban. The decision has caused fans to voice their opinion with this decision likely to please some and infuriate others.

Head of Operations at DSG, Matthew Tait, has this to say: “It’s good that the court has not bowed to the pressure of upsetting a big La Liga side which is quite refreshing given the scandals surrounding the game at present. The Court was also quick to make a decision before the opening of another transfer window and without grounds which will be listed at a later date. Barca had been linked with the transfer of a number of players so this will impact the whole process in January where Barcelona have been in the chain.”

Jason Hope, Content Manager of DSG believes that the decision will have far reaching impact: “Firstly the decision to uphold the original transfer sanction is clearly for the reason that Barcelona breached the rules regarding the transfer of under eighteens. Reading the views of Barcelona, they feel that the errors made were simply in the clerical details that are the result of the clash between Spanish legislation and FIFA regulations. Barcelona and the fans of that club believe the sanction to be disproportionate. Everyone it seems has an opinion on this.”
