GHALCA members uphold sanctions for Kotoko

Published on: 15 July 2011

Members of GHALCA unanimously endorsed the  ban and fine imposed on Asante Kotoko at an emergency meeting held on Friday for snubbing the President's Cup medal and trophy presentation early this month.

Kotoko fans have been angered by the 10,000 Ghana cedis fine and one-year ban handed the club by the Interim Management Committee but that have now received the full backing of its members.

The club blamed referee Awal Mohammed for their 7-6 penalty shoot-out defeat to Premier League Champions Berekum Chelsea in the match played at the Accra Sports Stadium on 1 July.

Earlier on Friday, Kotoko officially replied GHALCA in a letter and described their decision to punishment them as "rash and a disregard to natural justice."

    Great decision Ghalca. Their action was really disrespectful and if a strong stand is not taken to decipline them, the smaller clubs will do the same. Shame on kotoko

    they call themselves what? "club of the century".... and they dont know the rules of the game. they benefited from the same rule when they beat Wa All Stars in the MTN FA Cup semi final and Wa All Stars never complained. Kotoko must learn to accept defeat or they would jeopardize the game in Ghana. Idiots!!!!

    Kotoko can never be bigger than Ghalca. Do they really understand the meaning of membership? Why on hell do this red shirted club make noise like that. They came to Tarkwa to score Medeamaa when the referee favoured them to do so and they never complained. Now they are beaten by the League champions and they are making noise. They always want to be favoured not considering the fact that in football you either win,loose or draw.

    Nobody is saying kotoko shouldn't be punished but what we are saying is that the punishment is too harsh in the sense that 1.No room was made for an appeal to be made 2.Ghana Football Association,the mother of all associations was not coppied but have referred some conduct charges to them meanwhile Ghalca coppied the vice president which is in the right direction,sports minister.Somebody should tell me where on this earth in this modern world should somebody prevented from a right of an appeal? this is quite serious but we know where they are coming from.Why shouldn't Ghalca investigated why a memorable and all important match like May 9th and punish the culporate?b'cos that also happened in presense of the president and some gov. officials. anuanom, momma yenhwe biribi yie efirise, okwasia se sore ne anaa me so wo abre a anka ese se oka se sore yen so thank you

    masa, stop what you are saying and lets face fact. What kind of hearing do you want? Everybody saw what happened. Etua wo yonko hoa etua dua mu, when the same thing happened at the Baba Yara stadium, you guys were jubilating. stupid people. Do you think Ghana football is for you people. Go to Argentina,even almigty River plate has gone to relegation,how much more foolish Kotoko.What do you have in football. Nothing.and you called yourself club of the century. under my foot. leave Ghalca alone and stop your stupid, nonesence and uncivilised attitude. go away

    not we... but it was said about us. Go read about the 1970 african cup of nations... the final match between sudan and Ghana ( what did Ghana do? the coach was Ben Koufi) then read about the 1972 olympic Games in Munich Germany ( baseball match between USA and Russia) May the souls of the Isearly team rest in peace. Read or ask and you de told. Aboabi ba like you.

    I keep on saying this,KOTOKO is a disgrace to GH football.The question i wanna ask them is can they misbehave like this in an intern-continental competition?Have they forgotten what CAF did to them when their pathetic fans physically assaulted referee Cojja Koffie of Benin during a CAF match at the Baba Yara stadium some few yrs ago?I wonder what kind of administrators that they have,they simply no nothing about football.Thumps up to GHALCA.
