The Ghana FA intends taking up a the issue of coperation agreements between clubs to avoid sanctions from CAF or FIFA.
The football association is concerned with the developing trend of Ghanaian clubs signing coperation agreements when doing player transfer deals.
Asante Kotoko have benefited most from this innovative trend after claiming to have signed coperation agreements with TP Mazembe and Petro Luanda during the transfers of Daniel Nii Adjei, Yaw Frimpong and Ben Acheampong respectively.
Kotoko recieved substantial amounts of monies from these clubs under the cover of coperation agreements during the sale of these players.
But Ghana FA boss Kwesi Nyantakyi has revealed this trend of coperation agreements between clubs is an illegality which only serves as a means of concealing income realized from the sale of players.
The GFA President turned into a ‘whistle blower’ haven felt cheated by Kotoko for not declaring the total amount realized from the sale of Ben Acheampong – a former All Stars player of which Nyantakyi is the owner.
According to Nyantakyi, the emergence of coperation agreements is a pure illegality against competition rules in football.
The Ghana FA has thus decided to take up the matter to avoid incurring any sanctions from governing bodies; CAF and FIFA.
“We need a holistic review of this issue of coperation agreements between clubs,” GFA spokesman Ibrahim Sannie-Daara told Kumasi-based Angel FM.
“It is against competition laws and we don’t want to sit idle and wait for CAF to sanction us.
“Secondly the clubs who helped in the development of these transferred players lose a lot of income.
“The Ghana FA that recieves a percentage of the transfer fees also lose a lot.
“Several administrators and club owners have showed concern of this developing trend.
“So we must find ways towards addressing this issue as it is against the law of competition.”
