"The FIFA administration informed the parties to the dispute that based on the long-standing and well-established jurisprudence of FIFA's deciding bodies, it did not seem to be in a position to continue with the investigation of the affair," the spokesperson said.
"The proceedings were therefore closed for formal reasons."
