Two major clubs of Indian Super League SC East Bengal and Kerala Blasters FC have received a transfer ban from the world football governing body FIFA. The ALL India Football Federation received a letter from FIFA’s Players Status Committee (PSC) on the 1st of June. However, AIFF proceeded to forward the letter to the clubs on June 7.
According to the transfer ban rule by FIFA, it will restrict the banned clubs from registering new players. The Indian Transfer window starts on 9th June, but both the clubs can not sign new players.
Johnny Acosta from SC East Bengal and Matej Poplatnik from Kerala Blasters FC registered complained to FIFA against the clubs regarding unpaid salaries.
However, the Kolkata giants seem to be in trouble as they already have similar cases. Nine other players from the club, including Abhishek Ambedkar, and CK Vineeth, went to the Player Status Committee of AIFF. Currently, the club is in a struggle with the investor Shree Cement over the signing of the final agreement.
Meanwhile, the Yellow Army have already started to rectify and expects to lift the ban imposed by FIFA once the payment is confirmed.
