Sunderland SACK Emmanuel Eboue – less than a month after he signed up to survival fight

31 Mar

The suspension relates to a decision taken by the single judge of FIFA’s players’ status committee in July 2013 which ruled that Mr Boisseau was entitled to a payment under the terms of the agreement he had with Eboue.


However, Eboue was fined 30,000 Swiss francs – around £21,650 – by FIFA’s disciplinary committee in September 2014 for failing to comply with that decision and given 120 days in which to do so, after which point Mr Boisseau was entitled to request the ban if he had not been paid.

Eboue appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport, but his case was rejected.

The statement added: “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.”
