FIFA Have No Spine, Says Lawyer

FIFA Have No Spine, Says Lawyer

Sports lawyer Mel Goldberg told the press that United may report Real to FIFA but they will achieve none with it.

The club threatened the white bastards after their persistent and ultimately successful attempts to unsettle Ronaldo really rattled Fergie and Queiroz. Yet they won't be punished too severely even if the report happens and they are found guilty.

'If Real Madrid are reported to FIFA, they will probably get a rap on the knuckles.

'I don't know whether they would be expelled from, for example, the European Cup or whether they would be deducted points in the league.

'What FIFA would probably say is you cannot keep a player against his will if he is not happy and wants to go elsewhere.

'They would give some minor castigation and the deal would go through.'


In other words: FIFA have time for creating grand scales in order to ensure the Premier League's demise yet they do not have the spine to stand up to the world's most powerful club and uphold the rules even against them. No surprises there.

If you want to report Real to FIFA, I think you should hand yourselves in to FIFA for all the player tapping you've done down the years. Hypocrites.

Its relevant because u r simply bitter and jealous....hehe..we never harrassed a player like that m8...We are not Real, and one of the "cleanest" teams ever... Look at ur own team's action like the Heinze case and the Barry saga this year...

although this article sounds very true, I hope this is some trick where we get a lawyer to foretell FIFA's actions so that they act in an opposite way... Reverse psych stuff...Like mourinho did a lot in his days

We all do it to each other. Tapping up happens. The main difference here, it involves the best player in the world & the biggest 2 teams in the world. It is world news.
