Sanchez issue hangs

/ 01:21 AM September 29, 2013

WHILE Spanish striker Rufo Sanchez remains in limbo with the United Football League still to rule on which team he should join this season, the team that earlier signed him, Global, has been forced by the league to forfeit games in UFL preseason play where last year’s top scorer was involved.

The UFL Disciplinary Committee said Sanchez failed to secure a Player Transfer Certificate from Stallion, making him ineligible to play for Global, which still made the semifinals of the preseason tournament along with Loyola Meralco, Green Archers and Nomads.


“Sanchez will remain ineligible until the dispute is either settled by the two involved clubs, or until the UFL passes judgment on whether Sanchez will be considered a free agent or a Stallion player,” a statement from the league said.

Global forfeited wins against Union, Manila All-Japan and Loyola because Sanchez saw action in the games.  Cedelf P. Tupas
