first_imgPeru to send ex-football boss to US LIMA, Peru (AP): Peru’s president is signing off on the extradition of the country’s former football boss for his alleged involvement in a multibillion-dollar FIFA bribery scandal involving marketing and broadcasting rights. Manuel Burga has been in jail since December as part of the investigation. Peru’s Supreme Court in June had cleared the way for his extradition to the United States (US). President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski’s decree authorising the move came yesterday. It is not clear when Burga will be sent to the US. Burga oversaw Peru’s football federation for more than a decade until 2014. He has denied any wrongdoing. FIFA youth transfer rules challenged ZURICH, Switzerland (AP): FIFA rules that restrict youth players from being transferred worldwide are being challenged in a Swiss court. Zurich law firm Nater Dallafior Rechtsanwaelte says it filed the case for a 17-year-old player from Africa. It declined to identify him or any European club supporting the case. The case was filed Wednesday in Zurich’s cantonal (state) commercial court. FIFA says it had not been notified. The case argues FIFA rules discriminate against youths from outside the 28-member European Union. FIFA rules limit under-18s being transferred internationally to specific circumstances, such as a player’s family moving for non-football reasons. There are some exemptions for 16- and 17-year-olds to comply with European labour laws. Since 2014, FIFA imposed transfer bans on Barcelona, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid over youth signings. Bale to have ankle surgery MADRID, Spain (AP): Gareth Bale will need surgery on his right ankle and is expected to be sidelined for at least two months. Real Madrid says Bale will undergo the procedure on Tuesday in London. Bale limped off the field after getting hurt in the second half of Madrid’s 2-1 win over Sporting Lisbon in the Champions League next Tuesday. Madrid did not give a timetable for Bale’s recovery, but players who undergo similar procedures are usually out between two and three months. Bale is certain to miss the match against Barcelona on December 3 at the Camp Nou, as well as FIFA’s Club World Cup later in the month.last_img read more
