The Mexican Marco Fabian say today that the Federation of its country needs to clarify "exactly" what happened in the Ecuadorian hotel leading to the ejection of eight players from the national team.

"I'm confident that the Mexican Football Federation will put all its resources at its disposal to clarify the situation and that they can informed the Mexican fans exactly what happened," said Fabian as he read a press release.

Fabian and other seven players were expelled from the national team participating in the Copa America after it was revealed that they brought prostitutes into the hotel they were staying in in Ecuador and were robbed as a result.

All of the players have apologized, among then Jonathan dos Santos, of Barcelona, but Fabian upon apologizing left open questions when he asked that the facts be clarified.

"It is the work of the Federation to offer conclusions and give their version, once they have information from all the parties involved," declared the midfielder for Chivas.

Fabian said he would accept the sanction of the Mexican Football Association who will not call him up for six months and has fined him 50,000 pesos (4,347 dollars).

The Chivas player said from today on he will turn the page and continue working on gaining a spot on the national team.

The coach for Chivas, Jose Luis Real, reiterated his vote of confidence in Fabian: "We had to listen to him. I was a trainer for the national team for ten years. I know what it means and I know everything that happens there."
