The Accra High Court Financial Division Two has dismissed a suit by former Kotoko striker Emmanuel Clottey after the player requested the Club to pay his wages following his suspension by the World football governing body.
Clottey had sent a petition asking his former Club to pay his wages after his current Club Olympics decided to relief him off his monthly salary due to the ban imposed on him by FIFA.
Due to the situation, the player and his representative served the court with a suit to compel Kotoko to settle his wages claiming the Porcupine Warriors decision to go contrary to an agreement with his former side Esperance over his transfer forced FIFA to sanction him.
FIFA fined Clottey and amount of $1,000 for his failure to comply with a decision passed by the Dispute Resolution Chamber on June 11, 2015.
In addition the Accra High Court have also slapped the player with a GHC5,000 fine.

Clottey’s transfer saga with Kotoko has been a major talking points in the past few weeks with Kotoko already settling a fine imposed on them by FIFA.
The issue got heated up five years after the Club had left Esperance to Kotoko.
Kotoko had initially refused to pay Esperance the transfer fee of the player resulting to the Tunisian side to report the issue to FIFA who then ruled in favor of the North African Club.
