Blatter stands by ban of Barca players

Sepp Blatter says FIFA will not back down from a ban handed out to a host of youngsters at Barcelona.

Koreans Paik Seung-Ho, Lee Seung Woo and Jang Gyeolhee, Theo Chendri from France, Nigerian-Dutchman Bobby Adekanye and Cameroonian Patric Sousia were all banned as FIFA ruled Barcelona had broken the rules regarding signing youngsters from overseas.
