World Football Gorvening Body FIFA has placed a transfer ban on a Ghanaian Division Two club Platini FC for failing to comply with a decision of FIFA’s Player Status Committee.
The Ashanti Region based club on 18 February 2020, was asked to pay an amount of EUR 16,250 plus interest of 5% p.a. as of 31 January 2018 to Sporting Clube da Covilhã, Portugal.
The Ghanaian lower tier side has not fulfilled what they were asked to by FIFA.
Following a request by lawyer for the Portuguese side, Jan Schweele, for harsher sanctions to be imposed on Platini FC, in addition to the currently implemented transfer ban, FIFA has announced that the said ban shall remain up until the due amount is paid and for the maximum duration of three entire and consecutive registration periods.
“In light of the foregoing, and considering that a transfer ban has been implemented in full on the Respondent, the club Platini FC, and is currently being served in accordance with art. 24bis of the RSTP, we wish to inform the parties that the said ban shall remain up until the due amount is paid and for the maximum duration of three entire and consecutive registration periods”, FIFA reiterated in a letter to both parties and to the GFA.
The GFA has been asked to ensure that Platini FC does not transfer any player this season and two subsequent seasons.
