League Report of Monday, 3 November 2014
The long legal tussle between the Ghana Football Association and the King Faisal Football Club is not a concern of only local players and Clubs, but even Ghanaian players who ply their trade outside the country.
King Faisal is in court fighting the Ghana Football Association (GFA) over their relegation to the second tier league whilst they have a protest pending.
The litigation however has been adjourned several times and that has cast dark clouds over the start of the football season which was earlier scheduled to begin last month, giving doubts if at all it would happen this year.
Former Hearts of Oak captain, Mahatma Otoo who now plies his trade in Norway with Songdal fc, is not happy with the delay an action he stressed has affected most of his colleague footballers in Ghana financially.
“It’s a pity that we as a nation will sit down and allow such a thing to happen to us. Everyone has started their leagues and some are even getting to the second round, but here we are chasing even the date of the commencement”, Mahatma mentioned in an interview with sportscrusader.com.
“All the conversations we have these days is about what is happening and the delay of the commencement of the league, and frankly it’s not fun, having such conversations, because you could see that financially, it is draining them and their Clubs as a whole.”
