The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has received and referred a complaint letter from Ghana Premier League (GPL) side Dreams FC to the Ethics Committee.
In the letter which was dated 27th October 2020, Dreams FC reported the allegations of influence peddling which was allegedly made by Board Chairman of Tano Bofoakwa FC, Mr Yaw Boateng Gyan.
Dreams FC alleged that Mr Yaw Boateng Gyan has unjustifiably put the good name of their club into disrepute by suggesting that unnamed officials of the club influenced the exit of player Andrews Appau from the National U20 team.
In accordance with the provisions of Ethics of the Association, the GFA Ethics Committee will initiate proceedings on the matter and determine the veracity of the allegations made by the Board Chairman of Tano Bofoakwa FC or otherwise and take appropriate actions.
According to Chairman of Bofoakwa Tano FC, Mr Yaw Boateng Gyan who was speaking on Accra-based Angel FM on Monday, 26th October 2020, the club’s former player, Andres Apau was dropped from Ghana’s Under-20 team for snubbing the Accra-based side to sign for Ghana Premier League (GPL) giants Asante Kotoko SC.
He revealed that the defender was being pursued by several clubs including Dreams FC but his club Bofoakwa Tano decided to sell him to Asante Kotoko SC.
That decision, according to him cost Apau a place in the national U-20 side as he has been sent home by some senior figures of the team, who he claims also work with Dreams FC.
