Sunderland sack Emmanuel Eboue 3weeks after signing him after he's banned by FIFA

emmaindexSunderland football club in it's bid to stay away from
another controversy after the Adam Johnson saga,
has moved swiftly to sack Ivory Coast defender
Emmanuel Eboue after the Ivorien was this morning
slapped with a one year football ban by FIFA for
refusing to pay his agent.
The former Arsenal defender, aged 32, signed for
the Black Cats earlier this month on a short-term
deal until the end of the season.
But that contract has now been torn up after it
emerged that the former Ivory Coast international
will not be available to feature. Eboue has been
banned by FIFA for 12 months for failing to pay his
former agent.
He can return to action sooner than that if he pays
an amount owed to his former agent Sébastien
Boisseau. Eboue was initially ordered to pay the
money in July 2013 and fined for failing to comply
with the judgement in September 2014.
He subsequently appealed against the decision to
the Court of Arbitration for Sport, but his appeal was
dismissed. A statement released by Sunderland
confirmed the players had two weeks in which to
appeal against their decision to sack him.
