French FF celebrate Chelsea transfer ban
The French Football Federation have welcomed FIFA's decision to ban Chelsea from signing players until January 2011.
French Football Federation president Jean-Pierre Escalettes, meanwhile, is pleased with the decision to punish Chelsea.
He said: "We had alerted FIFA and the Football Association against such misbehaviour.
"What these clubs are doing is like what I have seen from Qatar in other sports, who sent their sporting directors to Paris to recruit and nationalise young athletes.
"We are perfectly happy to see such misbehaviour being sanctioned.''
