Denmark’s AaB Fodbold could reportedly be fined up to $16,666 (100,000 Danish kroner) for their record sale of attacker Bassogog to Chinese club Henan Jianye according to Finanstilsynet.
The Danish Financial Supervisory Authority does not believe that AaB lived up to its obligations in relation to telling the public how much the Cameroon international was sold for.
In February 2017, AaB negotiated with Henan Jianye regarding the Cameroon international’s services and it was reported by bold.dk that Jianye had made a 45 million Danish kroner (approx. £5 million) bid.
This is what Anne Bruun, head of office at the Danish Financial Supervisory Authority said about the matter:
“We have chosen to report AaB because the club as a publicly traded company is subject to some rules on disclosure of internal knowledge that may affect their shares and affect the purchase and sale of them.
“And in connection with the sale of a player in February last year, AaB has retained information that could otherwise be read at the media bold.dk,” says Anne Bruun to TV2 Nord.
