After Seung Woo Lee, FIFA ban more kids at Barcelona

FIFA have moved to ban more of Barcelona's youngsters from playing for their youth teams. After it emerged that South Korean whizkid Seung Woo Lee had been blocked from playing for Barca following complaints over his international transfer, El Mundo Deportivo says five more teens have also been sidelined.

FIFA insist none of the six can play for Barca as they moved countries before turning 18 years of age.

Along with Lee, fellow South Koreans Paik Seung-Ho and Jang Gyeolhee have been blocked. French youngster Theo Chendri, Nigerian Bobby Adekanye and Cameroonian Patrice Sousia also could not play last weekend.

Barca are now appealing the ruling.
