The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has postponed their final verdict on the case between Wilfred Osei ‘Palmer’ and the Ghana Football Association (GFA).
CAS previously announced they would release their verdict on Friday, 17 July 2020, however, they have postponed the case to 4 August 2020.
In a report seen by YEN.com.gh on Myjoyonline.com, CAS said the extension is pursuant to Article R59 of the Code of Sports-related Arbitration.
The football administrator took the GFA to CAS following his disqualification from contesting the 2019 Ghana Football Association presidential elections.
The Tema Youth owner was disqualified by the now-defunct Normalisation Committee / Elections Committee from contesting the elections.
He was disqualified on two grounds: One was his failure to pay the 10% mandatory fee to the association following the transfer of his player, Joseph Paintsil, to Belgian side, KRC Genk.
If Palmer wins the case, as part of the relieves he’s seeking, the results of the last presidential elections will be declared null and void and fresh elections will be held.
If the arbitration court throws out Palmer’s case, Kurt Okraku will continue to serve his four-year term as president of the association.
Meanwhile, former Tottenham striker, Frédéric Kanouté, has heaped praises on international Ghanaian footballer, Thomas Partey.
Kanouté believes that Partey is currently the best player in the La Liga.
According to the ex-Sevilla star, Partey stands tall amongst all the African players plying their trade in the Spanish top-flight.
