Now this is a harsh penalty for taking a bit of cocaine:

"The club can confirm that it has received the decision from Fifa\’s Dispute Resolution Chamber (DRC) on the claim made against Adrian Mutu," read a statement from Chelsea. "Chelsea is delighted with the DRC\’s decision to award the club £13.68 million in compensation."

Is this breach of contract stuff? Anyone know more detail about the claim?

  1. As far as I’m aware, by taking drugs (and being caught doing so) he would have made himself unavailable to play for the club. As he’s contracted to be a footballer, I suspect this is where the breach was.

    I’m not, thankfully, a lawyer so I could well be wrong.
