“Good to hear” Chelsea fans agree with club’s controversial decision on transfer ban

Chelsea fans on Twitter have supported the club’s decision to not attempt to freeze their transfer ban at this time, with many supporters agreeing with the club’s plan of action.

The Blues were slapped with a two-window transfer ban prior to this summer’s window for breaking rules related to the signing of foreign minors and have already seen an initial appeal rejected by FIFA.

Barcelona faced a similar fate but managed to freeze the ban for the summer of 2014, allowing the Catalan club to sign a number of fresh faces including Luis Suarez, Ivan Rakitic, and Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

Chelsea could still look to freeze their embargo by taking the case to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), but the ruling body has yet to hear from the west London club, according to football.london.

With uncertainty surrounding the future of Maurizio Sarri, it is still possible that Chelsea look to suspend the ban once their managerial status is clear, but thus far they seem poised to accept the embargo, a decision that has been greeted with a surprising amount of support from fans on Twitter.
