FIFA fines Persepolis for breach of transfer rules

Khalatbari

Tehrantimes - Iranian football club Persepolis has been fined 55,000 Swiss francs by FIFA's Disciplinary Committee for breaching the rules of transfer windows.

Khalatbari had signed a two-year deal with the UAE’s Ajman in June 2013, but after the Pro League changed its name to Arabian Gulf League, the former Al Wasl midfielder had to return home.

At that time, the Iranian football federation decided to bar their players from signing for UAE clubs and Persepolis signed the midfielder.

The Iranian giant paid $850,000 – the release clause in Khalatbari's Ajman contract – and signed him for two years.

Persepolis acting president Aliakbar Taheri said that the team has been fined by FIFA for breaching the rules of transfer windows and there has been a problem in transfer date.
