FIFA let us down!!

FIFA let us down!!

Daniel Cousin's move to Fulham is off after Fifa refused to sanction the move.

Cousin had only played 20 minutes as a substitute for Lens before his summer switch to Rangers. However football's governing body were too stubborn and have cancelled the deal.

A Fulham spokesperson confirmed: 'Daniel has had to return to Rangers because Fifa won't change their policy on a player playing for more than two clubs in one season.

'Unfortunately, that means we will not be able to welcome Daniel Cousin to Fulham.'

FIFA have not impressed me today!!

i was just thinkin the same thing about pool, but we were appearantly interested in faye (on loan at rangers from charlton) and has played for both this season and one of their spokespeople said that they try to accomodate clubs as much as possible but this decision does seem to contradict that staement! but then again when have fifa ever got anything right?
