GHALCA tilting towards lifting ban on Kotoko

Published on: 19 July 2011

The Ghana League Clubs Association (GHALCA) is on the verge of reversing the one-year ban placed on Asante Kotoko, GHANAsoccernet.com understands.

The Ghana giants were banned for a year and slapped with a 10,000 Ghana cedi fine for snubbing the medal and trophy presentation ceremony during the 2011 President’s Cup on July 1.

This development follows extensive meetings between officials of the welfare body and the executive chairman of Kotoko Dr. KK Sarpong on Monday.

Discussions between the two parties were said to be such a success much that GHALCA are leaning towards dropping the ban element of the sanctions placed on the Kumasi-based club.

Dr. Sarpong who was out of the country when the shameful incident took place at the Accra Sports Stadium has been largely credited for the latest turn of events.

A Press release from GHALCA to make the intended decision official is expected in a couple of days.

    Toothless fools. Typical Ghana afraid of the so called big clubs because they provide them with most of their earnings. If they could not uphold the punishment why did they put up in the first place. Cowards. Fools. If i were Kotoko i would repeat the act after all nobody can do ''foko''. Ghanaian leaders. Tchew. Would the same have happened if it were Mighty Jets

    Shiit, GALCA can suspend Kotoko all they want, but remember in this biz, its all about the big wigs to make money. How much money can GALCA generate from Brekum Chelsea in a year when they take kotoko's place. Its all about the dollar brother. Money and politics go together .....hahaha. well done Dr K.K.

    Jaay did u see any GFA in the article? Or u are reading something else? If u have a different issue with the FA lets hear it but dont blame the FA for this nonsense. I knew from day one that GHALCA was wasting its time. Even when Kotoko was punished I asked for the law they were using to punish them so we all can interrogate it. Was it bcos the Vice Pee was involved? It was wrong to disrespect him but do u ban them bcos of this?

    My Good friend, that is why it is not Mighty Jets but 'Mighty Kotoko'. You see, they are the biggest and most successful club in Ghana. Their support base is second to none, their fans pay and attend fill the stands which gives GFA and GHALCA money (kudi, alebe, cash, dough)and that must count for something. You see, the world is not fair, but God is Good.
