Three weeks after signing for Sunderland, former Arsenal player, Emmanuel Eboué has had his contract terminated by the club over payment scandal. The Ivorian was suspended by FIFA for one year after failing to pay his former agent Sébastien Boisseau.
“Sunderland AFC has been advised by the Football Association that Emmanuel Eboué has been placed under an immediate suspension from football and all football-related activity for a period of one year, by Fifa.
“The suspension relates to a monetary dispute which precedes his time at Sunderland AFC and was not something that the club was made aware of by the player.
“Eboué signed a contract with Sunderland AFC until the end of the current season and the club has therefore given notice of its intention to terminate the contract. The player has two weeks in which to appeal this decision.” The English Premier League outfit said in a statement.
