6000 footballers to be jobless - Lawyer Ntow Fianko

Former Chairman of Division One League Board of the Ghana Football Association Lawyer Ntow Fianko indicated that lots of footballers will lose their jobs if the government continues with its approach to dissolve the FA following FIFA’s ultimatum on Monday.

FIFA has ordered government to withdraw its case in court to dissolve the Ghana Football Association.

Several Ghanaian clubs have broken camp after football activities in the country came to a halt over Anas expose’.

FIFA has issued a threat that government’s move to put all football activities on hold contravenes with its status that frowns on undue influence in football matters.

“I expected government to start the process of prosecuting individuals who were captured in the video receiving bribes and leave the Ghana Football Association as an institution. I think that is why FIFA has threatened to ban Ghana,” he told Ghana Crusader Radio.

“FIFA has no issue with prosecuting individuals caught on camera in the expose’. Its problem is about the direct interference into football activities.

“Government needs to do the right thing, else about 6,000 Ghanaian footballers, will lose their jobs if Ghana suffer a ban from FIFA.”
