Sevilla's appeal to have the result of their Europa League defeat to Paris Saint-Germain overturned has been dismissed by UEFA after the French club and goalkeeper Apoula Edel were cleared of any wrong-doing.
Los Nervionenses made the request to UEFA after the 24-year-old Cameroon-born custodian had been accused of falisfying documents to enable himself to play for international football for Armenia, which would have rendered his registration with les Parisiens illegal under UEFA regulations.
However following a police investigation in France it has emerged that there was no substance to the allegations against Edel with his passport found to be genuine.
As a result, European football's governing body has rejected Sevilla's appeal to have the three points awarded to them according to a report published by AS.
