Chairman of the Ghana League Clubs Association (GHALCA) Cudjoe Fianoo has confirmed agitations from clubs over the disbursement of FIFA COVID-19 reliefs by the Ghana Football Association.
Speaking to Oyerepa FM, Mr Fianoo admitted clubs questioning reasons behind GHALCA receiving $2000 from the Ghana Football Association.
“I have heard the agitation of our members even though we are yet to receive the money with some members questioning why GHALCA is getting $2000..”
“..but that notwithstanding, looking at how unhappy our members are, we will engage the FA President to find out if there’s a possibility to do broader consultations; at least they should give us the opportunity to also share our thoughts.
He further highlighted the need for further consultation to avoid chaos from the clubs.
“There’s the need for the broader consultations because on a lighter side if care is not taken, this can result in third world war”.
“Kurt’s administration is a listening one and I’m confident they will listen but should that fail, we will support whatever the members will say”, He said.
Cudjoe Fianoo has come under pressure in recent times with former GHALCA boss Alhaji Raji describing him as autocratic and lacking transparency in his dealings on behalf of the association.
Meanwhile, president of the New Edubiase Abdu Salam Yakubu is reported to have rejected COVID-19 financial relief package from the GFA over what he described as unfair treatment of Division One clubs.
“I won’t come to a meeting with any club or club official. Everybody should take their own decision but me as the bankroller of Edubiase I have rejected the money because we have not been treated fairly by the ExCo,” Abdul Salam Yakubu is quoted to have told Asempa FM.
