Fulham hit with a ban after breaching a Premier League rule


Following Fabio Carvalho’s move to Liverpool, Fulham were given a fine relating to a payment the club made to Balham Blazer. The Premier League gave Fulham a fine for breaching registration rules. The Cottagers are given a £75,000 fine. Moreover, they are suspended from registering any academy players for six-months. Fabio Carvalho came to Fulham from Balham Blazers in 2014. After his contract got over he left the club to join Liverpool. The 21-year-old became a part of Liverpool’s squad in 2022. However, he did not shine during his time at Anfield.

A club statement read: “The Premier League and Fulham FC have entered into a sanction agreement following the club’s accepted breaches of the Premier League Rules in relation to player registrations.”

“The club will face a six-month ban (suspended for one year) from registering any academy players currently or previously registered with another club and will pay a £75,000 fine. The suspended registrations ban commenced on 15 April 2024.”

The reason of Fulham’s ban is settlement payments for Carvalho that breached the rules.

Fabio Carvalho’s impressive performance at Hull City

The 21-year-old made just four Premier League starts and only 21 appearances in all competitions. Carvalho was sent out on loan to RB Leipzig at the start of the campaign but he struggled to find his form in the Bundesliga. The youngster was given a call to Liverpool again in January before going on loan to Hull City. The U-21 Portuguese international has been impressive at Hull. He has 9 goals and 2 assist to his name in 19 appearances. The Hull City manager, Liam Rosenior has also been happy with Carvalho’s performance for the Tigers. Rosenior said that the youngster is humble and that he is going to have a great career because of his right mentality.
