Al Fayed vows to fight on
12 Jun 2007 - 11:40:35
Fulham owner Mohamed Al Fayed is determined to carry on the fight to overturn the decision not to hand a points deduction to West Ham United following their controversial purchase of Carlos Tevez and Javier Mascherano last August.
Al Fayed will continue to back Sheffield United's 'fight for justice' campaign even if an independent arbitration panel fails to rule that the decision to fine rather deduct West Ham points for a serious breach of transfer regulations was flawed.
"If any club brings in players without approval, how can they just want to fine them, because it affects other clubs," he said.
"We are going to arbitration to teach them a lesson. Why do they make favours?
"If the arbitration is fair and people who know about law and about justice, we are on the right side.
"If arbitration fails, we go to court. I am a man of principle.
"I just don't let people get away with unfair and unjust practices, especially the Premier League."
Sheffield United finished in the bottom three after losing at home to Wigan Athletic on the last day of the season while the Hammers were winning at Manchester United.
