Emmanuel Eboue denied license to play in Cyprus over ‘abnormal blood values’
The former Arsenal’s expected move to Cypriot club is taking a nosedive after he had complications with his medical
Emmanuel Eboue has had his transfer to Cypriot side Turk Ocagi Limasol put “on hold” after his medical revealed “abnormal blood values.”
Eboue 34 agreed a 12-month contract with the Northern Cypriot outfit, after he finished serving a one-year ban for failing to pay his agent
According to Goal’s Chris Wheatley, Tekin Birinci—who acted as an intermediary in the deal taking the free agent to Cyprus—confirmed Eboue the news.
“Eboue signed for a club and, as a normal procedure, we took him for a medical to check him out.
“They found abnormal blood values so they didn’t issue the licence and we took the decision to send him to England to have medical check-ups there.
“It’s wrong to say at this point he has HIV. Turkish news reports are wrong. I made it [Eboue’s situation] clear two days ago. Even if it will be true it shouldn’t be published like that.”
