Taiye Taiwo Fined
Nigeria defender Taye Taiwo has been fined by his French club Olympique Marseille for rejoining the team late from the Africa Cup of Nations in Angola.

Taiwo has been fined three days’ pay by OM for reporting back to France four days late, according to the newspaper La Provence.

This will not be the first time that the left back has been sanctioned by Marseille for late reporting.

Several other Nigeria stars including skipper Nwankwo Kanu also found themselves in hot water for not teaming up with their European clubs immediately after the Nations Cup in Angola.
