Communications Director of the Ghana Football Association, Henry Asante Twum has divulged the football association will engage government on how to make payments for the fine imposed on the nation by CAF.
Ghana was fined a sum of $10,000 by the continental governing body for the pitch invasion which ensued during Ghana’s 2021 AFCON Qualifiers against South Africa – which the Black Stars won by two goals to nil.
Responding to the fine, the offical mouthpiece of the GFA intimated the punishment by CAF is manageable.
“I mentioned that we were expecting more not because I said we were expecting CAF to fine us with an amount that is more than they decided on” he told Accra-based Class FM.
“But sometimes there have been situations were the venue is banned from hosting all CAF competitions. But in our case Cape Coast is still intact we were even preparing to host Sudan in Cape Coast until the Covid-19 forced caf to postpone all the games.
“So the venue has not been touched, there hasn’t been any penutive measure on Ghana as regard to what we intend to do going forward. All CAF said was that we have been fined $10,000 for the incident”.
He disclosed the punishment from CAF is manageable and his outfit will engage the government in making payments.
“I think it is something that is manageable. From the side of the FA I don’t think we would appeal. We will allow the verdict to run.
“What we intend doing is probably engage government and see how we would make the payment” he concluded.
