Liverpool's Ex-Striker Titi Camara 'Gets Six-Month Jail Sentence' In Lawsuit By Ex-Wife

Former Liverpool and Guinea striker Titi Camera, who also served as the country's sports minister after his playing career, has been handed a six-month suspended prison sentence and given a $5,000 (£4,000) fine by a court in Guinea, local media report.

He was found guilty of "forgery, threats, public insults and family abandonment" in the case, which was brought by his ex-wife.

The lawyer for his estranged wife, Mariama Koulibaly, said: "We are going to see if we can make an appeal to get a larger sum. Because 50 million Guinean francs ($5,000) is not even enough to pay the kids' school fees."

Titi Camara's lawyer says he will appeal the ruling,
