Bobby Adekanye, the Nigerian who got Barcelona banned!


The origins of Barcelona’s ban by FIFA can be traced back to the improper signing of ten players, amongst them Nigeria’s Bobby Adekanye.Bobby, whose mother, Bukola Mosunmola and Father Ademola are based in the Netherlands we have gathered has also caught the attention of Lionel Messi who has on several occasions called him out for special mentoring.
In 2013, FIFA banned Barcelona from fielding Lee Seung Woo – considered the jewel in Barça’s academy crown – for breaching article 19 of the Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players.

Football’s world governing body then extended the ban to Korea’s Paik Seung-Ho and Jang Gyeolhee, France’s Theo Chendri, Nigeria’s (half Dutch) Bobby Adekanye and Cameroon’s Patrice Sousia.
The players whose signings have brought about Barça’s ban from signing any players for one year are: Lee Seung Woo (under-16s), Paik Seung Ho (under-18s), Chan Kyul Hee (under-16s), Theo Chendri (under-18s), Bobby Adekanye (under-16s), Patrice Sousia (under-14s), Giancarlo Poveda (under-14s),
Andrei Onana (under-18s) and Maxi Rolón (under-18s).
It appears that the tenth player on the list could be Paraguay’s Antonio Sanabria.
The Spanish Football Federation’s (RFEF) fine is for processing these players’ transfers.
Barcelona was banned by FIFA from signing any players for next season after being found guilty on Wednesday of repeatedly breaching transfer regulations. The heavy sanction, which covers the summer and January transfer windows, followed an investigation into the Spanish champion’s signing of players under the age of 18 from 2009-13.
