A year after joining Amiens SC, Iranian international striker Saman Ghoddos has just been suspended 4 months of all competitions by FIFA. The player and his former club, Ostersunds, are also ordered to pay a compensation of 4 million euros to SD Huesca, who played in Liga Santander last season. The Swedish club is also banned from recruiting on the next two transfer windows. As a reminder, during the summer transfer window 2018, the Spanish club believed to have validated the arrival of the player, who had himself moved to Spain accompanied by his representatives, even affixing his signature. Still in talks with the Stade Rennais, which was offering more money, the Östersunds leaders had denied any final agreement and the transfer to Huesca had been canceled. While the Breton club had changed its plans at the last moment, Ghoddos had finally taken the direction of Amiens, which had paid 4 million euros. After the decision was rendered, Amiens SC issued a statement expressing relief at the FIFA Dispute Resolution Chamber's decision to exonerate the club of any responsibility in this case, but also announced of his support to the player:
"The 4-month sports suspension imposed on the player affects him especially in the first place but it also penalizes the club as a whole, brutally deprived of one of its major offensive assets for the first part of the season, with no real possibility of return as soon as the summer mercato finishes in a few days. Paradoxically, although exempt from all responsibility, the Amiens SC is a collateral victim of this heavy sporting sanction and suffers a characteristic damage. Given this unfair situation, the club reserves the right to initiate any action to preserve its rights and interests, " can read on the release of the club picard, which does not exclude to appeal this decision.
