real vs fifaSpanish giants Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid reacted angrily to being slapped with a one-year ban on registering new players by Fifa on Thursday, announcing their intention to appeal. Both clubs were sanctioned for their transfer dealings in foreign players under the age of eighteen.

Under international football rules, players under eighteen cannot be transferred to another country, except in limited circumstances and then need the approval of a special Fifa committee.

Atletico also announced they will appeal, although president Enrique Cerezo insisted they would be able to cope with a ban.
