Former Asante Kotoko National Circles Chairman, Kwaku Amponsah (Chairman K5), believes the Ghana Football Association has targeted the Porcupine Warriors with selective justice practice.
The Disciplinary Committee of the Ghana Football Association sanctioned Asante Kotoko coach Mariano Barreto and skipper Emmanuel Gyamfi after being found culpable for misconduct.
Barreto, a former Ghana Olympic Team coach, made allegations against match officials after Kotoko’s game against Legon Cities stating among others that his side played 11 vs 15 while Gyamfi was found guilty of dangerous play during Kotoko’s Ghana Premier League game with Inter Allies in Dawu.
A group of Kotoko fans have paid the fines imposed on the player and coach by the Ghana but, the former chairman of Kotoko’s National Circles group believes the Ghana FA is exercising selective justice against the Ghana Premier League record winners.
“I don’t like blaming people by heart but I have come to believe the allegation being levelled against the GFA about their selective justice against Kotoko. They have made Kotoko their target,” he told Kumasi-based Silver FM.
The Disciplinary Committee found Barreto guilty of the charges and has imposed a two match ban and a GH3,000 Cedi fine while Gyamfi was charged with a breach of 34(6)(d) of the GFA Premier League regulations, 2019 for deliberately stamping on Andy Okpe and fined GH1000 Cedis and handed a one match ban.
