There could be trouble coming for Arsenal in coming days as Arsenal could lose three points over breaking one of the FA’s rule. It’s an offence for any team to name a player who isn’t registered and Arsenal ladies have done something contrary to this rule.
This is very bad news as it will cause the Arsenal Ladies from securing a spot in the 2014/15 UEFA Women’s Champions League considering the fact that there is only one game left to be played, and even if they win the game, they still won’t meet up.
Nevertheless, Arsenal ladies manager still believe Arsenal could go through the tournament.
“We have always prided ourselves on being a well-run club that do things the right way, and we are extremely disappointed by this
decision, Alkers told the Arsenal Official Website.
“Following legal advice, we will not be appealing the FA’s ruling. We will instead focus our energies on responding in the right way on the pitch.
“We’ve got the Continental Cup final to prepare for next month and the 2013/14 Champions League campaign to focus on too, with a round of 32 draw against Kairat from Kazakstan.”
