Man City, FIFA team up for CAS appeal by Velez Sarsfield

LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) Manchester City and FIFA will be on the same side of an appeal case at the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

CAS says an appeal by Argentine club Velez Sarsfield to challenge the transfer of teenager Benjamin Garre will be heard on July 3.

Velez complained to FIFA last year that City broke rules preventing trafficking of minors by signing Garre after he turned 16.
