South African Premier Soccer League side Amazulu have reported Ghanaian international Awal-Issah to FIFA after he refused to pay aÂ $160,500 fine and went AWOL.Â
Premier Soccer League, the body in charge of the South African top-flight, ruled the former Rosenborg midfielder pays the hefty fine in March after absconding club duty.
The player cannot play professional football in any country that falls under FIFA governance until he pays the cash but the he has not communicated to the club since the fine was slapped.
â€œThere has been absolutely no hint of response from the player. We have since notified the PSL who have in turn informed SAFA who then notified FIFA and this is where the matter stands up to now,â€ AmaZulu general manager Peter Oâ€™Connor told KickOff.com.
AmaZulu also claim they have made contacts in Ghana and their enquiry have revealed the 28-year-old is not in Ghana.
â€œWe actually believe he is not even in Ghana because of all the people that we have spoken to, nobody seems to have any idea about his whereabouts,â€ says the club official.
