29-year-old Cameroonian Yann Songo’o who currently plays for Morecambe has received a six-match ban from the English FA following homophobic language he directed to an opponent.
Yann Songo’o who was charged with calling a Tranmere Rovers player a f*** during a League Two game on January 30 admitted to the charges against him. Songo’o was given a red card in that particular encounter and now the FA has banned him for “aggravated breach of FA Rule E3.”
The ban for Yann Songo’o had been expected with some media reports indicated that the player will be missing some six weeks of action for Morecambe. The club had refused to comment on the matter as the investigation was being carried out by the FA.
“Morecambe FC’s Yann Songo’o has been suspended for six matches and must complete face-to-face education after admitting a charge for a breach of FA Rule E3 that occurred during a match against Tranmere Rovers in the EL League Two on Saturday, January 30, 2021,” an official statement from the FA stated.
“The suspension, which was imposed by an independent regulatory Commission during a subsequent hearing, includes two matches that have already been served. As a result, Yann Songo’o will be unavailable for Morecambe FC’s next four matches.”
Yann Songo’o, son of former Cameroon goalkeeper Jacques Songo’o has featured three times for the Under-20 side of Cameroon. The player who can play as a defender or defensive midfielder has played for a host of clubs such as Real Zaragoza, Sporting Kansas City, Plymouth, Scunthorpe and now Morecambe.
