“I strongly believe that the Ghana Football Association has nothing to show at the Court of Arbitration for Sports to our innocence to turn over CAF’s decision on the disqualification of the Black Starlets.”
“If they had facts to present and talk about at FIFA, nobody could have stopped them from going. The FA has nothing concrete to show at CAS, either than that, they wouldn’t have declined. They earlier on indicated that the case shall be pursued to the FIFA level but why the sudden change of mind? It is simply because they don’t have anything to prove.”
These were the words of Alhaji Abdul Karim Grunsah, after the Ghana Football Association announced that the decision of CAF to uphold the MRI ban on the Black Starlets shall not be challenged at the Court of Arbitration for Sports.
CAF banned Ghana after Cameroon protested that Ghana’s Isaac Twum was over 17 years after the two teams met in the 2015 African U-17 Championship qualifiers.
Ghana appealed the decision only for CAF to uphold it. Ghana rescinding its decision to pursue the case at CAS compels the King Faisal owner and bankroller into thinking that the FA has nothing to prove against CAF.
