Angers and the PFC in the trap.
Banned from recruiting by FIFA in a case of alleged transfer-relay then a relaxed time, the Angers SCO can pull its head from bad days. And Paris FC with it. On Tuesday, FIFA made public the conclusions of its investigation report, at the same time dismissing the Angevin club of its presumption of innocence and strengthening the disciplinary procedure against it.
Bought 250,000 euros by the SCO from Paris FC last August just after signing his first pro contract there, Kevin Bemanga had played the entire 2019-2020 season at … Xerez, former resident of La Liga now in the Spanish fourth division. However, FIFA regulations state that a player cannot be transferred twice within 16 weeks. The professional contract signed in Paris was thus concluded with the aim of twisting the neck to training compensation. Indeed, these must be paid by a club to the former teams of the player. If the PFC paid 120,000 euros, it would have avoided Angers paying 340,000 euros by serving as a relay platform. All this to deprive the Spanish training clubs of the player of 180,000 euros, since their intention would never have been to play Bemanga in reality.
If the SCO denies having been aware of the maneuver and claims to have “Spotted Bemanga during Paris FC preparation matches” Without knowing his past, FIFA claims that the player has never played a preparation match with the second club in the capital. The board Angevin even tried to explain that the compensation paid to the PFC (transfer price + percentage on resale) would in any case supplant the training compensation due to members of the circle.
In conclusion, the fine of 30,000 Swiss francs and the recruitment ban for this summer are maintained, pending the final verdict in the coming weeks.
