Ghana PL blame game intensifies



The Ghana League Clubs Association (GHALCA) say they are not to blame for the late start of the Premier League.

The relegated King Faisal has dragged the Ghana FA before the Accra High Court because its management was not pleased with the judgement of the judicial bodies of the GFA, after their petition against Aduana Stars for nonpayment of a fine of GHS 5000 ($1700) was squashed.

Alhaji Ali Raji say the Ghana FA is to blame, going on to blame the head of the country's soccer governing body Kwesi Nyantakyi.

Should Faisal win the case, Aduana Stars would suffer relegation and Faisal will stay up. The case has been pending for more than two months.

Earlier, the GHALCA boss had earlier stated that there should be a compromise between the two parties.

“The way forward is for the GFA and the parties to reach a compromise where everybody will be satisfied, satisfied in the sense that an issue arose and the party was not happy.

“He (Alhaji Grunsah) went to court, if the GFA will find a way because GHALCA met and we had our options but we are not the organisers of the league so we have asked the FA to reach a compromise which we believe will be well for Ghana football but if they don’t the League clubs association will find a way out.”

Alhaji Raji believes a new body must be formed to run the top flight, but is adamant that Nyantakyi is the cause of the current problems.
