In an amazing twist to the already long-running Carlos Tevez saga, Fulham have submitted a claim for Ã‚Â£700,000 in compensation after they finished below West Ham in the 2006/07 Premier League season, according to the Independent.
The Cottagers argue that they would have not finished below the Hammers had it not been for the signing of Tevez they would have received more money for finishing in a higher position that season.
West Ham were fined Ã‚Â£5.5 million in April 2007 after the Premier League decided the club had broken rules over third-party agreements when they signed Argentine duo Tevez and Javier Mascherano and recently settled a long-running feud with Sheffield United who were relegated that season with a Ã‚Â£20 compensation package.
West Ham finished in 15th place in the 2006/07 season whilst Fulham finished 16th meaning Fulham received Ã‚Â£20.26 million whilst the Hammers received Ã‚Â£20.71 million in prize money. Confusingly Fulham are claiming Ã‚Â£700,000 in compensation, rather than the Ã‚Â£450,000 difference in 2007 because that is the amount they would receive this season.
