Confirmed: Sunderland to sack Emmanuel Eboue following defender’s one-year playing ban

In a statement, FIFA said: “Emmanuel Eboue, who has represented Cote d’Ivoire and is currently registered for the English club Sunderland AFC, is to serve a ban on taking part in any football-related activity that will last for one year or until he pays the total outstanding amount owed to his former agent if this occurs before the one-year ban has elapsed.

“Following the expiry of the final deadline granted, Mr Boisseau requested that the one-year ban be imposed on Mr Eboue in accordance with the decision of the FIFA disciplinary committee.

“The relevant parties, including the Football Association which has been requested to implement said ban, have been informed accordingly.”

Eboue’s appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport was rejected and now the suspension has been invoked prompting Sunderland’s decision to part company with him.
