King Faisal officials are deeply unhappy with the Ghana Football Association following the decision regarding the protest lodged against Tamale City FC.
Alhaji Grusah’s side learned yesterday that its protest against the Northern-based club has been dismissed by the Disciplinary Committee of the Ghana Football Association.
The protest was in relation to their Ghana Premier League matchday 30 clash, which took place at the Aliu Mahama Stadium on May 6.
King Faisal FC had alleged that Tamale City FC fielded an unqualified player with different names [Isaac Mensah/Jireh Kojo Nissi] during the match.
Hoping for a favourable outcome, King Faisal FC sought a victory by default, which would have awarded them three crucial points to boost their chances of avoiding relegation. Unfortunately for them, the Disciplinary Committee ruled otherwise.
However, the management of the club are planning to appeal the GFA Disciplinary Committee to sit on the case again.
They are also calling for the postponement of their final two games against Legon Cities and Real Tamale United.
While speaking in an interview, the spokesperson for the club, Awal Mohammed said:
“We will make the appeal this morning. We will also make sure that the rest of our games will be postponed or will be on hold so that the appeal will be decided before the matches will continue.
“We don’t want a situation whereby you play the two games and then the appeal wouldn’t make any significant impact. It only makes sense that we hold on for the two games. We are making plans to make sure that the two games are postponed before the appeal decision will be made,” he told Ghanasportspage.com.
King Faisal FC, currently sitting in the 17th position, will have to win their remaining matches and hope for favourable results elsewhere to secure their escape from relegation. On the other hand, Tamale City FC now holds their destiny in their own hands as they strive to achieve their goals in the Ghana Premier League.
