Due to a young player: FIFA imposes a transfer ban on 1. FC Köln

FIFA has severely punished German Bundesliga team 1. FC Cologne over a dispute over the transfer of a young player. Rhinelanders are not allowed to sign new players in the summer and in the upcoming winter transfer window. The background to the brutal penalty kick is the circumstances surrounding the signing of U19 forward Jaka Cuber Potocnik.

The 17-year-old Slovenian was signed by Cologne in January last year, apparently shortly after terminating his contract with Olimpija Ljubljana in his home country. The Slovenes claimed that Cologne incited the 16-year-old Potochnik to switch and defend themselves at FIFA. With success: the body responsible for the settlement of disputes in the World Federation found the Cologne team guilty of unjustified breach of contract and incitement to breach of contract. The city of Cologne also has to pay Olimpija Ljubljana €54,000. Potocnik will be banned for four months with immediate effect.

1. FC Cologne announces that it will appeal the ruling to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS). In table 13. Austrian team players Dejan Ljubicic and Florian Kainz are under contract
