Andreas Christensen

Chelsea have been hit with further allegations of breaking FIFA and UEFA rules, this time it involves centre-back Andreas Christensen.

A report in Italy previously claimed that FIFA had suggested Chelsea be handed a two-year transfer ban. This relates to the potentially illegal signings of 19 players, one of which is Bertrand Traore, who we subsequently sold on to Lyon for a considerable fee.

While Chelsea fans lost sleep over a potential transfer ban, another report emerges. The Guardian report, citing the latest batch of information released by Football Leaks, that we have been accused of paying Christensen’s father for a job he didn’t.

It’s claimed that Christensen’s father was paid £11,400-a-month for four-years, with the officially story being he was employed as a scout on the same day his son signed for the club.

There was no evidence of him actually doing it. He worked as a goalkeeping coach for Brondby during the period he was allegedly on Chelsea’s payroll.

These allegations against us are serious and could cause us serious problems. With Chelsea declining to comment, and there being no confirmation from FIFA or UEFA of any wrongdoing, let’s not be too concerned at this stage.
