The UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body has decided at its meeting on 5 February 2015 to suspend the Liverpool FC player Lazar Markovic for four UEFA competition matches, following the direct red card he received during the UEFA Champions League group B match between Liverpool FC and FC Basel 1893, which was played in England on 9 December 2014. As the club did not lodge an appeal, the above-mentioned decision is final.

 

The UEFA Appeals Body met today, following an appeal lodged by Legia Warszawa against the decisions taken by the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body (CEDB) on 2 December 2014 in relation to incidents that occurred during their UEFA Europa League Group L match against KSC Lokeren OV, which was played in Belgium on 27 November.

The appeal of Legia has been rejected and the original decision of the CEDB upheld. The club have to play two UEFA competition matches as host club behind closed doors (one of which has already been played) due to the racist behaviour of its supporters. Legia have also been banned from selling tickets to its supporters for the next UEFA Europa League competition matches (2014/15 season), which the club will play as the visiting team. Legia had been fined €105,000.

The UEFA Club Financial Control Body (CFCB) adjudicatory chamber, chaired by José Narciso da Cunha Rodrigues, has taken decisions in the cases of four clubs that had been referred to it by the acting CFCB chief investigator, due to the presence of overdue payables balances

The decisions of the CFCB adjudicatory chamber are as follows:

FK Ekranas (LTU): The club is excluded from participating in the next UEFA club competition for which it would otherwise qualify in the next two seasons (i.e. 2015/16 and 2016/17). The club has also been fined €15,000.

CFR 1907 Cluj (ROU): The club is excluded from participating in the next UEFA club competition for which it would otherwise qualify in the next three seasons (i.e. 2015/16, 2016/17 and 2017/18), unless the club is able to prove by 31 January 2015 that the amounts that were identified as overdue payables on 30 September 2014 have been paid. In addition, CFR 1907 Cluj has also been fined €150,000.

FC Astra Giurgiu (ROU): The club is excluded from participating in the next UEFA club competition for which it would otherwise qualify in the next three seasons (i.e. 2015/16, 2016/17 and 2017/18), unless the club is able to prove by 31 January 2015 that the amounts that were identified as overdue payables on 30 September 2014 have been paid. The club has also been fined €100,000.

Bursaspor (TUR): The suspended exclusion imposed by the Court of Arbitration in Sport (CAS) in 2012 comes into effect and Bursaspor is therefore excluded from participating in the next UEFA club competition for which it would otherwise qualify in the next four seasons (i.e. 2015/16, 2016/17, 2017/18 and 2018/19).

The CFCB adjudicatory chamber has now imposed on Bursaspor a further exclusion (i.e. for a different season to the season in which the above-mentioned immediate exclusion applies) from participating in the next UEFA club competition for which it would otherwise qualify in the next four seasons (i.e. 2015/16, 2016/17, 2017/18 and 2018/19). This new exclusion applies unless the club is able to prove by 31 January 2015 that the amounts that were identified as overdue payables on 30 September 2014 have been paid.

The club has also been fined €100,000, half of which is suspended and will only fall due if the club is not able to prove by the above-mentioned deadline that it has paid the above amount of overdue payables.
