Yakubu Moro has threatened to quit football should the Ghana Football Association (GFA) and the Premier League Board (PLB) insist on their decision to let Techiman City participate in the 2015-16 Ghana Premier League season (GPL).

The Ethics Committee of the GFA found Techiman City and Wa African United guilty of match fixing charges and demoted them to division 2.

However, the Techiman based club who qualified for the Ghana Premier League, by virtue of winning the zone 1 of the division one league last season have applied for stay of execution and appealed against the decision of the Ethics Committee to demote them to division 2.

With the league scheduled for 20 February, 2016, the GFA is bent on continuing its programme for the GPL by allowing Techiman City compete in the upcoming, before they decide otherwise if the Techiman based club fail to clear themselves , after exhausting all judicial processes related to football.

But Yakubu Moro, who is an interested party in the case, due to the fact that his club Berekum Arsenal stand a brighter chance of replacing Takyiman City, should they be demoted to division 2, has threatened to retire from football over the decision to permit the newly promoted GPL side participate in the league.

“I will quit football if GFA allows Techiman City to play in the Ghana Premier League. The club was found guilty of match fixing and demoted to division 2, so why should they be permitted to play?

“In that case I will no longer be involved in the running of Berekum Chelsea, but do my own thing outside football, because there is no fairness,” he told Happy FM.
