Cadiz are confident they will emerge victorious from their ongoing FIFA battle with Watford over Momo Mbaye.

That’s according to El Desmarque, who say there is optimism they will win the case despite it still being unknown when it will be resolved.

The Spanish side were sanctioned by FIFA last year after Watford registered a complaint with the governing body over the defender’s move to Spain.

The Hornets argued that the transfer in 2019 was not legal as they still owned the rights to the player and had the documents to prove it.

This was contested by Cadiz and the player, with the latter insisting that he had never signed a deal with Watford and the signatures contained within any such document were falsified.

This is something Cadiz also maintain, claiming that the contract Watford hold is ‘false’, even going as far to submit an ‘independent calligraphic report’ to FIFA to prove signatures contained within it are not the player’s.

They had their transfer ban suspended by the Court of Arbitration for Sport in May last year, and they have been battling to get it overturned since.

That’s a process they believe they are close to winning, with president Manuel Vizcaíno commenting as much.

“We are waiting,” he told the website.

“At the hearing, it was clear what the club’s intention was and many other things.

“But the courts are the ones who have to say about the way of acting. I’m optimistic because we are right, but then a court has to give it to us.”
