'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Tevez Case Goes To Court

FIFA passed the case of Carlos Tevez to the Court of Arbitration for Sports.

World football's governing body recommended it as the quickest way to solve the matter.

'The recommendation from Fifa to the FA and the Premier League is to go to the Court of Arbitration for Sport,' said a Fifa spokesman.

'Under the circumstances it was felt it would be in the best interest of all parties to take this course. It looks like being the fastest way of resolving this matter. It is not a refusal by Fifa to get involved, quite the contrary. It is a recommendation by Fifa to opt for this way.'

FIFA can't rule on third-party ownership as they have no explicit rules against it, unlike the Premier League. And speaking of Scudamore and co.: they welcomed FIFA's decision and support the recommendation.

I think it's good news. Had FIFA decided anything on the matter, surely one of the parties would have appealed - and that would have taken the whole case to CAS anyway. They've just cut it short.

It has not yet been revealed what the clubs' and Tevez's stance is on the matter but hopefully, a decision will be reached soon - after all, even Eggert Magnusson himself admitted yesterday that it is unlikey they would be able to keep Tevez.
