Kumasi Asante Kotoko winger, Emmanuel Gyamfi has been charged by the Ghana Football Association’s Disciplinary Committee following his tackle on Inter Allies midfielder Andy Okpe.
The Kotoko deputy captained was filmed to have stamped on Okpe in an off the ball incident during the round of 29 clash in the Ghana Premier League fixture between Kotoko and Allies, which the former won by three goals to two.
Gyamfi portrayed an act which was far from sportsmanship as he deliberately stepped on the Inter Allies middle man.
Following reviews by the Ghana Football Association, the Kotoko man has now been referred to the Disciplinary Committee after being charged.
The right-winger is said to have breached Article 34(6)(d) of the GFA Premier League Regulations.
“Emmanuel Gyamfi: You: on 14th of June 2021, during the match between Inter Allies FC and your team at the Theatre of Dreams, did stamp player number 45m of Inter Allies (Andy Okpe) in an off-ball situation around the 65th minute of the game, an action which in the opinion on the association is an improper and likely to bring the game into disrepute”.
Article 34[d] of the Ghana PremierLwague regulations states “In addition to matters referred to in any other regulation, it shall be misconduct if a club, Director, official, Referee, Assistant Referee, or Player or member is proved to have done or permitted or assisted any of the following to be done: [d] Commit any offensive act not provided for above or make any offensive statement either verbally or in writing or is responsible for any conduct or any matter which is in the opinion of the Association, ungentlemanly, insulting or improper behavior or likely to bring the game into disrepute”.
If found guilty, Gyamfi could be hit with a possible ban which could be a huge problem for Kotoko considering the time of the season.
