Okraku calms fears over Dreams FC’s league status

Kurt Okraku, the executive chairman of newly-promoted Ghana Premier League side Dreams FC, says his side have nothing to worry about as they come before the Disciplinary Committee of the Ghana Football Association over discrepancies involving one of their players.

The Accra-based side are to face the disciplinary body on the charge of Amidaus Professionals following an earlier Player Status Committee ruling that Daniel Gozar is in fact the same as Cudjoe Mensah.

The player, by the verdict, registered for two clubs in two different league divisions of the Ghana Football Association under different names and different date of births in the 2013-2014 season.

Dreams could see their premiership status affected if the Disciplinary Committee rules that the side were engaged in a fictitious registration of the player.

“There is no case, the case is over for me,” Okraku told Joy FM.

“I am a football man and the case came to a dead end after the reviews committee’s ruling.

“Amidaus’ issue is totally different from what Tema Youth filed and this distinction must be very clear.

“Dreams FC played in a 30-week league competition and led the table for 29 weeks, we are the undisputed champions of Zone 3.

“We were the strongest and best club of the zone and we are happy that we are in the Premier League. We are going to be very competitive in the topflight.”

Following the Player Status Committee’s ruling, Daniel Gozar/Cudjoe Mensah has been consequently banned for a year for falsification of names.
