New delay in Tevez case

Filed: Tuesday, 11th November 2008

Lawyers acting on behalf of Sheffield Utd have been told they will have to wait until Christmas before discovering whether their attempts to prevent the Hammers taking their case to the Court of Arbitration for Sport are successful.

The long-running saga took another twist today when Mr Justice Teare, hearing the Yorkshire club's injunction appeal (designed to prevent West Ham united from approaching the CAS) at the High Court this morning told those present that he would take time to consider the evidence before reaching a judgement "at some point before Christmas".

Sheffield United thought they had won millions from West Ham United last month when an arbitration panel acting on behalf of the FA declared the Championship club had the right to sue for damages. The decision prompted premature celebrations from Blades fans who printed bank notes featuring Carlos Tevez, the player at the centre of the whole affair.

However a series of delays means that they will have to wait for several months at least before getting their hands on any cash - and only then if all of West Ham United's attempts to have the crazy arbitration ruling overturned fail.

Further litigation awaits early next year when both clubs are set to attend a damages hearing in which it will be decided if and how much Sheffield United should be awarded.
