UEFA de­lays rul­ing in mys­te­ri­ous case of Fin­land player

Malta Independent - - SPORT -

UEFA says it has de­layed a rul­ing in a mys­te­ri­ous dis­ci­plinary case cen­tered on CSKA Moscow and Fin­land mid­fielder Ro­man Ere­menko. The Fin­nish foot­ball fed­er­a­tion pulled Ere­menko out of its squad on 6 Oc­to­ber, say­ing he had been sus­pended for a month ahead of a UEFA hear­ing but with­out giv­ing any de­tails why. That orig­i­nal 30-day sus­pen­sion has since ex­pired, but UEFA tells The As­so­ci­ated Press it has been ex­tended to Novem­ber 19 and “the de­ci­sion of the UEFA Con­trol, Ethics and Dis­ci­plinary Body is ex­pected to be an­nounced by the end of this week.” The 29-year-old Ere­menko has so far missed nine games, in­clud­ing two for CSKA in the Cham­pi­ons League and three World Cup qual­i­fiers, all of which Fin­land lost by one goal.
