FIFA fines Atletico Madrid for 3rd-party influence

ZURICH (AP) FIFA has fined Atletico Madrid for third-party interference in a player transfer.

FIFA says the transfer for an unnamed player included a contract which "enabled a third party to influence the club's independence in employment and transfer-related matters."

Atletico, which beat Real Madrid 4-2 in the European Super Cup on Wednesday, was fined 52,500 Swiss francs ($52,720).
