Sport Football Mexico Mexico suspend eight players for six months after hotel incident



Mexico have been hit by their second scandal this month after eight players in their Copa América squad were suspended for six months for indiscipline.ccer Extreme : Mexico have been hit by their second scandal this month after eight players in their Copa América squad were suspended for six months for indiscipline.

The players were caught breaching disciplinary rules while staying at a hotel in Ecuador on their way to the tournament in Argentina, which starts on Friday.

The players involved are forwards Marco Fabián de la Mora, Javier Cortés and Néstor Calderón, midfielders Jonathan Dos Santos, Jorge Hernández and David Cabrera and defenders Nestor Vidrio and Israel Jimenez.

Hector Gonzalez, director of national teams, said: "The players will be suspended for the next six months from any national team call-ups."

Mexican media reported the players had told the coach, Luis Fernando Tena, that they had belongings stolen from their rooms after inviting "female guests" to stay. Tena told reporters: "It's lamentable, I didn't expect it, I was surprised. Now we must start again."

The hotel's manager, Robert Ramia, told the Ecuadorean news programme Ecuavisa: "We have video of women entering the rooms area of the hotel."

Gonzalez said: "I'm not going to give details of the facts, but regulations were breached and indiscipline committed. The players confessed, they regret it, offer their apologies to the fans, coaching staff and directors and assume the consequences of their acts."mexico team fotbal scandal news today from footbal extreem top news today

The players have also been fined 50,000 Mexican pesos (£2,600) each, while eight replacements have been named after Mexico were given permission to make changes to the squad before handing in their official list.mexico team fotbal scandal news

It is the second scandal to hit Mexico in less than a month after five squad members at the Gold Cup were suspended after testing positive for a banned substance. The national football federation has set out to prove that the players, tested at Mexico's training centre in mid-May, ate meat contaminated with clenbuterol, a substance used to speed up and increase muscle mass in animals.mexico team fotbal scandal news

Mexico were also embroiled in a case of indiscipline last September when Carlos Vela and Efrain Juarez were suspended for six months and a dozen others fined over a late-night party at the team hotel in Monterrey after a friendly with Colombia.
