Ghana’s premier club, Accra Hearts of Oak has expressed dissatisfaction in what they described as delay in announcing the decision of their review case against Kumasi Asante Kotoko.
They therefore urged the Ghana Football Association (GFA) to expedite action on the case in order to facilitate a prompt start of the Premier League season.
The Phobians initially had their protest against Kotoko over of the eligibility of Kotoko’s Obed Owusu in their 25th week fixture upheld by the GFA’s Disciplinary Committee, which also awarded them three points.
They were later ducted the three points when Kotoko appealed against that ruling and had all their 6 points restored, which led the Phobians to heading back to the Appeals Committee on October 23 for a review of the decision which they described as a “miscarriage of justice and wrongful interpretation of GFA, CAF, and FIFA regulations”.
The Managing Director of Hearts, Gerald Ankrah, in a letter to the acting General Secretary of the GFA dated November 19, 2015, expressed the club’s disappointment in the FA for not ruling on the case before the GFA congress which took place on November 9.
It continued: “We are therefore advising that, in the interest of Ghana football, the application should be considered in time to ensure that the legal system and processes work and the matter also comes to rest, especially as the new season is about to begin.
“Please, note that a new season cannot begin if the previous one has not ended, hence the need to expedite the review process,” Hearts warned.
