Crewe chief Gradi happy to see Chelsea punished

Crewe Alexandra football chief Dario Gradi is happy to see Chelsea cop their transfer ban over the deal for Gael Kakuta.

Gradi said: "I'm delighted with what has happened with Chelsea. I would hope all the big clubs are frightened to death. There is no excuse for breaking the rules.

"We lost a 12-year-old to Everton. He was our best 12-year-old. The lure is that the bigger clubs pay big expenses.

"This kid will be getting several hundred pounds a week in expenses. We pay expenses but nothing like that. It's more a case of giving out £20 if someone can pick a kid up en-route.

"It is so hard to protect your players. All this goes against the morality of the game - it's the rich robbing the poor. At least FIFA have given the smaller clubs hope."
