Techiman City striker Stephen Manu says he will ditch the club if they fail to win the appeal against Ghana Football Association Ethics Committee’s ruling that demoted the club to the third-tier league.
Techiman were found guilty of match fixing in their Match day 22 second-tier league game against Wa African United en route to their promotion.
Manu joined Techiman from Laos side SHB Champasak on a season-long deal to revive his career.
“All the players have heard in the media and read the latest ruling [demotion of Techiman City] but the club’s top hierarchy is yet to officially inform us,’’ Manu told Boss FM.
“We’re still undergoing the scheduled training until we’re told otherwise.
“I signed for Techiman City to play in the Ghana Premier League and not in the third-tier league so if the club fail to overturn the ruling, I’ll move out. I came back to Ghana to specifically play in the top-flight and the dream is still intact,’’ he added.
However, Member of Parliament of Techiman South constituency, Hon. Adjei Mensah has sworn to drag the case to the highest level, noting that the league cannot start in February.
“We are aware of the ruling but we’re waiting for the official letter from the Football Association before the next step is taken. I can assure the people of Techiman that the legal tussles between us and the parties involved will be unprecedented,” Hon. Mensah toldAsempa FM.
“I can reveal that the league will not kick off on February 20 because until the case is settled, there will be no league. The league may delay for several months more than it happened last season and I mean it. This is because we’re even planning to go to the law court if necessary.”
Techiman amassed 63 points to win Zone one of the Ghana division league, five points ahead of Real Tamale United (RTU).
