The FA has charged Queens Park Rangers FC with seven breaches of FA regulations.
The charges issued for breaches of Third Party and Agents Regulations relate to player Alejandro Faurlin concerning the alleged existence of an agreement between the Club and a third party in respect of the player’s economic rights, and the alleged failure by the Club to notify The FA of that agreement before the player was registered to play in England in July 2009.
The charges were brought under FA Rules C1(b)(iii) and E3, and the Third Party Investment in Players Regulations, A1 and A2.
QPR have also been charged with allegedly using or seeking to pay an Unauthorised Agent in relation to the player’s registration in July 2009. This charge is brought under the Players Agents Regulations, A1.
Both the QPR and chairman Gianni Paladini have also been charged in respect of allegedly false information contained in documents submitted to The FA in relation to the same player signing an extension to his playing contract with the Club in October 2010.
These charges are brought under the Players Agents Regulations, C2, and FA Rule E3.
In the statement on the club’s website they confirmed the charges “Queens Park Rangers and Gianni Paladini can confirm that they have received charges from the Football Association.”
However, the club pointed out that they would deny any wrong doing; “Having co-operated fully with the FA's investigation, QPR and Mr Paladini shall be denying all of the charges and requesting a formal FA hearing to determine them.
“QPR and Mr Paladini are confident that there has been no deliberate wrongdoing involved.
“Given this matter will now be dealt with by an FA hearing, neither the Club nor Mr Paladini are able to make any further comment.”
