Spanish La Liga side Espanyol have fined Mubarak Wakaso and ordered him to train away from his teammates after returning late from the Africa Cup of Nations.
Wakaso was in action for Ghana at the competition until last weekend’s third place play-off defeat to Mali and was due back a couple of days later.
However, he only returned to Catalonia on Thursday and has subsequently been fined and told to train by himself until otherwise instructed.
The 22-year-old told reporters upon returning to Spain that a fever had been the reason for his delay and that he had already informed Coach Javier Aguirre of this.
However, reports today are that Aguirre and sporting director Oscar Perarnau expressed their his actions.
He was then asked to train alone, accompanied only by one of the coaching team.
Wakaso was a revelation at the 2013 tournament as he emerged as joint top scorer with four goals.
