FIFA fine Irons

West Ham have been fined £71,000 by FIFA for Diafra Sakho not flying to join Senegal for the ACON to be examined by their medical team.

It’s a soft penalty as the club were found guilty – however what is surprising is West Ham welcoming the decision – ie admitting guilt.

This will no doubt open the doors for law suits against the club, especially from Bristol City, who West Ham knocked out the FA Cup whilst fielding Sakho – who subsequently scored the winning goal.
