Livorno, Juventus appeal against Chelsea compo ruling for Mutu

Chelsea face a longer wait for their compensation over Adrian Mutu's past move.

Chelsea face a longer wait for their compensation over Adrian Mutu's past move.

The Daily Mail says Serie A sides Juventus and Livorno have each appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport after FIFA's ruling demanded both clubs help Mutu pay Chelsea €21 million (£17,785,000).

Mutu was sacked by Chelsea in September 2004 after testing positive for cocaine.

The former Romania international received a seven-month ban from football, but Chelsea took a firm stance on the forward and sacked him before suing to recover the money they paid to sign him.
