Ghana Premier League side Medeama Sporting Club will appeal the Disciplinary Committee’s decision to deduct six points from it’s accumulated points and a ₵6,000 fine.
Following a protest by Accra Great Olympics and a subsequent hearing by the Ghana Football Association’s Disciplinary Committee, Medeama were found guilty of fielding an unqualified player in their matchday 12 fixture with the Accra based side.
The Disciplinary Committee has therefore awarded three points and three goals to Accra Great Olympics, declaring them as winners of the match.
However, in a statement released today, the Tarkwa based club rejected the decision, describing it as bogus and ridiculous.
”We are scandalized by the decision to award boardroom points to our opponents and will not rest until the well-deserved points accrued on the football pitch is restored” the statement said.
The club added that, though it is prepared to go through the GFA’s internal legal channels, it would go as far as the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) if need be.
”The club has initiated processes to file an appeal against the bogus and ridiculous decision and will exhaust the internal legal channels. The club will also explore other options including seeking justice at the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS). We stand by our argument and will take the appropriate action to ensure the final outcome is favorable for the club” the statement added.
Medeama has until close of work on March 17, 2020, to appeal the decision.
