QPR, Alejandro Faurlin and the great unknown

In early March, the FA charged Queen’s Park Rangers with seven alleged breaches of rules concerning undisclosed third-party ownership of Alejandro Faurlin, writes Jon Keen.

The alleged issues had apparently been discovered by the Football League in September 2010, but since they don’t have regulations forbidding third-party ownership they passed the information to the FA, who do have relevant rules over player ownership. These rules banning any third-party ownership were brought in after the so-called ‘Carlos Tevez affair’ – when West Ham were fined (but not deducted points) for improper third-party ownership of Tevez.
