Mutu lodges appeal against massive Chelsea compensation

Fiorentina striker Adrian Mutu has formally lodged an appeal against a ruling made by the Court of Arbitration for Sport ordering him to pay Chelsea £13.8m in compensation.

Chelsea sacked the Romania international striker after he failed a drugs test in 2004 and the Blues pursued him through the courts.

Mutu has now presented his appeal to a Swiss Federal Tribunal in an attempt to overturn the decision.

According to Il Corriere dello Sport, the terms of the appeal will be made public on Tuesday.
