Published Add your comment

FIFA are to step into the Carlos Tevez row and will investigate whether West Ham should have been docked points for breaching Premier League rules.

Sepp Blatter, president of FIFA, said the game´s world governing body had the power to pass a final verdict on an independent commission´s decision to fine West Ham £5.5million for having a third-party agreement.

Blatter told a media briefing in Zurich: "We will look at this - and not only if we are asked, we will do it anyway. We will ask for the file once it has been decided how and why the decision was made. If we feel something was wrong in this decision then we have to open our file."
