Barcelona won’t be expelled from Copa del Rey for fielding ineligible player

ESPN

Barcelona will not be expelled from the Copa del Rey for fielding an ineligible player after the RFEF Competition Committee ruled on Friday that Levante's letter of objection was received too late.

A report in El Mundo on Thursday claimed Barca faced expulsion from the Spanish cup after picking Juan "Chumi" Brandariz Movilla, in their first-leg round-of-16 match against Levante last Thursday when he should have been banned.

Levante club president Quico Catalan filed a formal complaint to the RFEF on Thursday night.
