Kuszczak, 27, has sought out Van der Sar for guidance and believes the 39-year-olds advice could help him to improve his game. He said: To be honest, I must say this and Edwin doesnt like this too much for sure, but he doesnt help me too much. I have told him a few times already to give me some more advice because hes got more experience and got many more games under his belt. But I dont know, maybe Edwin doesnt like me. Youll have to ask him. CHELSEA will be able to trade in the January transfer window after the Court of ArbitrationforSportagreedtosuspend their FIFA-imposed transfer ban. In a major boost before Sundays top-of- the-table clash with Manchester United, the Blues have been given a reprieve -- until a final decision is made in the case of the signing of Gael Kakuta. In September, FIFA banned Chelsea fromanytransferactivityforthenexttwo windows after they were found guilty of inducing Kakuta to breach his contract with French club Lens. Chelsea appealed to CAS against the punishment and, as part of their appeal, requested the transfer ban be stayed until the case had been dealt with. A statement from CAS today read: The Courtof ArbitrationforSport(CAS)has granted the request for a stay filed byChelseaFootballClubLtdand Mr Gael Kakuta in relation to the decision taken by the FIFA Dispute Resolution Chamber on 27 August. The FIFA Dispute Reso- lution Chamber imposed, inter alia, a restriction of four months ineligibility on Mr Gael Kakuta, and Chelsea Football Club Ltd was banned from registering any new players for the next two complete, consecutive reg- istration periods. Such sanctions are now stayed until the CAS renders its final decision in this matter. CAS are not expected to hear the case until the new year, which should leave Chelsea free to buy and sell in January. CAS confirmed on 22 October they had received an appeal from Chelsea asking for the ban to be stayed. Imme- diately after the decision of FIFAs dis- puteresolutionchamberwasmadepublic, the London club made clear their intent to appeal against the ban and compensa- tion payments to Lens, which they described as disproportionate. A statement from the club read: The sanctions are without precedent and totally disproportionate to the alleged offence and the penalty imposed. We cannot comment further until we receive the full written rationale for this extraordinarily arbitrary decision. Lens requested compensation for Kakuta after he signed for Chelsea in the summer of 2008 and FIFAs DRC agreed Chelsea had indeed been guilty of induc- ing the youngster to break his contract and announced their verdict in a short statement on 3 September.
