Embattled Tema Youth President Wilfred Osei Kwaku ‘Palmer’ must cough up the disputed EUR 300,000 to the Ghana Football Association, according to high-ranking Executive Council member Nana Oduro Sarfo.
The latest artless attribution by the provocative member of the Ghanaian football governing body is an unwelcome news to the former finance chief of the FA who suffered hefty losses in his 2019 Ghana FA elections petition case at the Court of Arbitration for Sports.
CAS, an international sports tribunal, on Wednesday rejected all four (4) reliefs being which were sought by Palmer.
The Ghana FA Elections Vetting Committee disqualified him from the elections race in October 2019 on the grounds of low moral turpitude and integrity while using his failure to honour a pledge to pay 10 percent commission to the association for the transfer of player Joseph Paintsil as another basis to eject him from the race.
Palmer has insisted he does not have to commit payment to the GFA since the transfer didn’t take place in the jurisdiction of Ghana.
However after losing his appeal at CAS the Ghana Football Association will now take steps to recover the money from the embattled administrator.
“Palmer will now have to justify to us why he shouldn’t pay the money to the football association,” Executive Committee member Nana Oduro Sarfo told Benedict Kwadwo Mensah on the Ultimate Sports Show on Asempa FM.
The Tema Youth President must ensure that his club honour the 10% participation fee amounting to EUR 300,000 for the transfer of the player Joseph Paintsil to the Ghana Football Association.
