Trinidad and Tobago Football Association could face losing points from its recent World Cup qualifiers for playing an ineligible player.
Trinidad and Tobago registered Andre Boucard as playing for Maidstone Utd in England’s sixth tier, though a search of records shows no indication of his registration.
According to a report filed by The Soca Warriors website, Boucard was registered as a player intermediary with the English FA.
“English FA rules expressly prohibit an agent playing competitively in the elite professional and semi-professional tiers of the game.”
Rule 1.2 of Appendix II in the English FA rules states; “An Official (as defined by the FIFA Statues or any successor hereto) or a Player cannot be an Intermediary.
“An Intermediary becoming an Official or a Player shall have his Registration suspended for as long as he remains an Official or a Player.”
Boucard has subsequently pulled from the list of English FA player agents and his license temporarily suspended.
