West Ham have been cleared by a fresh FA and Premier League inquiry of further wrongdoing in the Carlos Tevez affair.
This latest inquiry looked at the changes to Tevez's contract that allowed the player to play in the final three games of the season. There were accusations that West Ham had not effectively changed the conditions of Tevez's contract for those games, however the club have now been cleared.
"The inquiry has concluded that, on the basis of the evidence available to them, there is no prima facie case that West Ham United and/or its officials did commit any further breaches of Premier League or FA rules immediately after the independent disciplinary commission's decision," the FA and Premier League said.
This statement is very important, as Lord Griffiths put huge weight on this very point in finding against West Ham. Here's what Griffiths' said when he found against West Ham,
"If the Premier League had known what Mr Duxbury for West Ham was saying to Mr Joorabchian's solicitor following the commission decision, we are confident that the Premier League would have suspended Mr Tevez's registration as a West Ham player.
"We have no doubt that those [Tevez's] services were worth at least three points to West Ham over the season and were what made the difference between West Ham remaining in the Premiership and being relegated at the end of the season."
Ever feel like you've been mugged!
