Mensah’s Fifa ban upheld

2015-05-20 11:26

LAUSANNE — Ghana defender Jonathan Mensah has been banned for four months by Fifa in a breach-of-contract case.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport says it upheld Mensah’s suspension imposed by Fifa last July in a case dating to 2011.

Fifa judged Mensah was contracted to Udinese when he joined French club Evian Thonon Gaillard four years ago claiming to be a free agent. Under Fifa rules, Mensah will serve about one month of the ban until the French season ends. Mensah is then a free agent, and will serve the final three months of the ban from the official start of his next club’s new season. — AP
