Former Black Stars Management Committee member, Yaw Boateng Gyan has said he has no money to give to the Ghana Football Association (GFA).
Yaw Boateng Gyan was handed a 2-year ban from all football activities by the GFA Ethics Committee for defamatory comments he made in a radio interview a year ago.
The Bofoakwa Board Chairman in an interview with Accra-based Angel FM alleged that young defender Evans Andrew Apau, who joined Asante Kotoko at the start of last season was dropped from the Ghana U-20 team for refusing to sign for Dreams FC.
Yaw Gyan stated that a management member of the U20 team called the player to issue a threat that if the player doesn’t sign for Dreams FC, he will lose his place in the National U-20.
Howbeit, the threat materialized after the player sealed a move to Asante Kotoko.
He further claimed that the conversation between the player and the Management member will be traced and the tape will be presented as evidence to the GFA.
Dreams FC were dissatisfied with the allegations and sent an official complaint to the GFA demanding investigation.
The FA after investigations found Yaw Boateng Gyan guilty. In effect, he was slapped with a 2-year ban and fined GHc5000. He has also been charged to issue a public retraction of the comments.
Reacting to the judgment in an interview with Kumasi based Ashh FM, Yaw Gyan said that the GFA’s approach is disrespectful and he has no money to pay.
“The verdict coming out without my knowledge is gross disrespect. I have no GHC5000 to pay the said fine,” Yaw Boateng said on Ashh FM.
“What do they mean by football-related issues, then they should come and take away my 3 tv because as I’m speaking with u now I’m watching an old Liverpool match,” he added.
