GFA could assist Kotoko in settling $240,000 FIFA fine

Executive Council Member of the Ghana football Association, Nana Oduro Sarfo has suggested that the Association could assist Kotoko to settle the $240,000 fine thas has been imposed on them by FIFA.

Kumasi Asante Kotoko has been asked by the world football’s governing body(FIFA) to cough up an amount of $240,000 after they were found guilty of transfer breaches.

The Porcupine Warriors broke the transfer rules after signing Emmanuel Clottey who was still on the books of Tunsian side Esperance.

Kotoko has been given a May 10 deadline to pay the fine or face even more serious sanctions.

Speaking to Asempa FM,
“I am not speaking with authority, I am only sharing my opinion, I think the GFA does not know Kotoko’s financial strength, they have to organize themselves and raise a substantial sum,” he said.

“If they are able to do that and eventually write to the FA for financial assistance, then the FA per the executive council will look at it and if we can help, why not.”

He added, “You know we are having our own financial issues to deal with which we’ve requested support from government.”

“But maybe we can do some interventions on their behalf, Its a club to club arrangement, but the federations can go behind and some guarantees could be given.”

“Until they (Kotoko) recognize us as the head of their federation and they write to us. We will also look at it and then our views will be taken, then we take it from there.”
