A Management Member of Berekum Chelsea, Nana Oduro Sarfo has defended the Ghana Football Association over its decision not to expel Accra Great Olympics from the Ghana Premier League.

Followers of the Ghana Premier League have impressed on the FA to trigger Article 21 Clause 1 sub Clause 4 of the GFA statues, which stipulates that clubs that fail to exhaust all internal modes of conflict resolution and seek redress at the Court of Law shall be expelled from the League.

But the astute football administrator believes that those making the demand are ill-informed about the laws that govern football in the country.

Oduro Sarfo disclosed in an interview with a journalist at the unveiling of a sponsorship deal with Soccabet that it will be illegal for the FA to expunge Olympics from the league at this stage of the litigation.

“There are some two clubs who were eliminated from the league. They are Aburi Highlanders and Hikari FC, they took us to court and then lost the case so when we went to Congress they were expelled. But King Faisal took us to court and the case is still in court so we can’t expel them. Also, Olympics have just gone to court, if Olympics should lose at the court, automatically they will go. But you don’t only pick the side of the law that suits you”.

Oduro Sarfo also expressed the hope that the legal battle between the GFA and Olympics will be dealt with expeditiously for the league to resume.

“Olympics cannot drag the case for a longer period because there should be an end to every litigation. We have the lower courts, Appeals Court and Supreme Court so when you exhaust all these avenues where else will you go”.

The start of the 2017 /2018 Ghana Premier League season was postponed for the second time following an application of injunction by Accra Great Olympics.
