Former Ghana Football Association President Kwesi Nyantakyi will be heading to the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) to appeal against a decision by FIFA to ban him football activities.
The former CAF vice President was hit with a hefty penance after the World Football governing body found him guilty of charges levelled against him in Anas’ video documentary which exposed the football administrator involved in some “corrupt” practices.
A press released signed by the WA All Stars owners reads:
I wish to express my shock and deep sadness after receiving the decision from the FIFA Ethics Adjudicatory Committee on Tuesday.
My legal advisors are under my instructions to urgently appeal the decision as I think it was unfair, harsh and unwarranted.
