FIFA intervene in Tevez row

Football's governing body FIFA have announced that they will investigate the row over West Ham United's punishment for breaching league regulations.

FIFA President Sepp Blatter confirmed this morning that they would look into the case - whilst adding that they have the power to overrule the Premier League in the event that they disagree with the League comission's verdict.

"We will look at this - not only if we are asked, we will do it anyway," Blatter told a press conference in Zurich.

"A decision will have to be taken immediately.

"We will ask for the file once it has been decided how and why the decision was made.

"If we feel something was wrong in this decision then we have to open our file."

* Bookies William Hill are offering odds of 10/1 that West Ham will be docked points for next season's Premiership campaign.
