Sunderland confirm fine over Ji error

4 April 2014 08:24

Sunderland have confirmed that they were fined after fielding ineligible player Ji Dong-Won in the Premier League this season.

Ji, 22, made five league appearances in 2013-14 before leaving for Augsburg in January, the striker eventually joining Borussia Dortmund one day later.

The Premier League strugglers – who are second from the bottom – claimed an administrative error led to the blunder.

And Sunderland officials have been left red-faced after being handed a fine for the incident.

"There was an administrative issue regarding the registration of the player," said a club statement released to ITV.

"The club was fined by the Premier League and the matter was dealt with at the time."

Ji also played in the League Cup, a tournament that Sunderland went on to reach the final in, and they also paid a fine to the Football League for his involvement in a tie with MK Dons.
