Chelsea have gone to the trouble to issue an official response to the decision by CAS to reject Adrian Mutu’s appeal. Here is the statement in full, published on their website:
Chelsea has released the following statement:
‘Chelsea welcomes the decision by the Court of Arbitration for Sport to dismiss the appeal by Adrian Mutu and uphold the financial award by FIFA’s Dispute Resolution Chamber in favour of the club.
‘This vindicates all of our actions throughout this case.’
Hardly worth bothering really!
