The defender owes money to his agent
Sunderland right-back Emmanuel Eboue has been banned for one-year by the Football Association over unpaid money that he owes to his former agent.
The ex-Arsenal man must serve this suspension in full if he chooses not to settle the payment with his previous advocate.
An official statement released on the Black Cats’ website has informed everyone that Eboue did not make the club aware of this situation when recently signing his short-term contract.
The Ivory Coast native had signed a deal that was meant to keep him with Sam Allardyce’s men until the end of the season, however, the arrival of this news has forced the club to give notice of contract termination to Eboue.
He has two weeks to appeal this decision, but it looks as though he will leave the North-East outfit without even making a single appearance.
