Central African Republic and Lens Forward Mouhamadou Habib Faces a Possible Two-year Jail Sentence

Central African Republic and Lens attacker Mouhamadou Habib Habibou, could face a suspended two-year jail sentence after committing a total of 85 offenses.

The former Leeds United man was found guilty by a trial judge in Belgium for multiple driving offenses.

The 30-year-old’s conviction was his 30th over numerous crimes which soared to eighty-five – all accumulated during the course of his nine-year football stint in Belgium.

A former Paris Saint-Germain youth product, the right-wing player was on trial for driving on several occasions without a license and a seatbelt on.

Fed up of The Wild Beasts’ goal getter’s notoriety, the trial judge slapped a suspended two-year jail term on the Lens player with a €12,000 imposed fine and five-year driving ban.

Habib failed to appear in court to witness the ruling but took to social media to throw a dig at a Belgian publication, accusing the paper of blowing his case out of proportion.

He featured 13 times for Ligue 2 side Lens, nine of those from the starting lineup, scoring seven goals and racking up two yellow cards last season.
