Belgian top tier side KV Oostende has terminated the contract of Cameroonian goalkeeper, Joseph Fabrice Ondoa with immediate effect.
According to the Belgian club, 2017 AFCON winner, Fabrice Ondoa organized a lockdown party over the weekend.
“During the night from Saturday to Sunday, the Ostend police were called up because of noise nuisance in the apartment building of Fabrice Ondoa in the Koningsstraat. It turned out to be a lockdown party in which ten people violated all corona measures. When the police arrived, they were also verbally harassed by the revelers and 11 police reports were drawn up”, the club wrote on their official website.
The executive president of KV Oostende, Gauthier Ganaye said the act from the Cameroonian goalkeeper can not be tolerated.
“As a football club, we cannot tolerate such selfish and irresponsible behavior. We are relieved that we have not had any covid contamination so far and we are doing everything we can to keep it that way. That is why we always remind our players of their duties and they also assume their responsibility. The corona protocols are strictly adhered to. KVO as a club is above the individual and given the seriousness of these facts, we therefore feel compelled to initiate the dismissal procedure against Fabrice Ondoa”, he is quoted on the club’s official website.
