Football world ‘shocked’ at Chelsea transfer ban

Chelsea are set to appeal against the year-long transfer ban, that they were handed by Giga for the way they signed Gael Kakuta from French club Lens.

“I think there is a general shock,” Kenyon said.

“Kakuta is shocked like a lot of other people. Kakuta is a very good young man, he is a good professional. He wants to develop his career and he has just been selected for international duty.”

Kenyon said: “He wants to play his profession, which is football. We need to take account of that and understand this is something that happened two years ago, and make sure we’ve got to ensure that he is fully supported at what is a difficult time for him.”
