Zarate contract risks FIFA ban

A legal battle is underway after Velez Sarsfield signed Mauro Zarate, even though he is still under contract with Lazio.

Argentine club Velez Sarsfield announced they had signed striker Zarate to a two-year contract this week and had sent it to FIFA for authorisation.

The forward is still under contract with Lazio until June 2014, as a legal battle is on-going between the player and his club.

Zarate has been frozen out of the Lazio side for over a year.

If FIFA rule against him, the player could be suspended and Velez Sarsfield penalised.
