Chelsea now have a sympathizer as relating to the ban handed to the club by the FA which will stop them from doing any transfer deals for the next two transfer windows.
The ban clearly spelt it out that the Blues team cannot register any new players in addition to a fine of 6,000,000 Swiss francs because of their involvement in irregularities by signing a youngster who is a minor.
However, a fifth-tier English club Gateshead have recently had the same experience and they now have reasons to cheer up as they are not alone in the hammer.
This development is expected to affect the West London outfit in the coming season knowing that they are set to lose Belgium international Eden Hazard at the end of the season.
The star player has insisted he would be leaving the club after refusing to pen down a new deal which makes it a delicate case for the Blues as they might not be able to compete.
Meanwhile, the Blues are set to part ways with their manager Maurizio Sarri for the damning defeats the club have suffered. There is no doubt that they are in a difficult situation.
It has therefore been made clear that the West London outfit will appeal the ban in coming days.
