After the airing of a controversial edition of News Night that claimed Arsenal Football Club had been engaging in some dodgy dealings, Fifa order the FA to conduct it's own investigation.
The FA today issued a statement revealing that upon completion of their investigation, there is no evidence that suggests Arsenal Football Club has broken any rules.
The statement read,
'As a result of those inquiries, we can confirm we have not identified any evidence to suggest Arsenal have breached any rules of the FA or the FA Premier League in relation to their dealings with Beveren and specifically any breaches of the FA and FAPL rules concerning dual interests or associations between clubs.'
'In order to protect the integrity of matches and competitions, these rules prohibit clubs in the same competition from being owned, influenced or controlled by the same person or entity.'
'In this case, the relevant competitions are the FA Cup and the FA Premier League. The rules also prevent a Premier League club from owning or controlling another Premier League or Football League club.'
'The FA has provided all the material obtained during its inquiry to FIFA for its consideration.'
The statement comes as no suprise as the conclusion draw by the FA was what every sane football fan could have told you as soon as the News Night 'exclusive' was screened.
I guess it is now up to Fifa & Uefa to work out that Arsenal also haven't breached any international footballing rules and get this sorry mess over and done with.
