FIFA fines, warns Brazilian agent over Gomes deal

Share This Story



FIFA has fined and warned a second agent over the transfer of Brazil goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes to Tottenham from PSV Eindhoven in 2008.

FIFA says its disciplinary panel fined Renato de Moura Ricardo 7,000 Swiss francs ($7,620) plus the costs of the proceedings. The case relates to rule breaches regarding proper contracts and paperwork.

On Friday, FIFA imposed the same sanctions on English agent Leon Angel.

Angel, whose clients include England coach Roy Hodgson, said he planned to appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

FIFA says it was alerted to both cases by the English Football Association in 2011.
