The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has ruled in favour of Tamale City after King Faisal filed a complaint against their Ghana Premier League rivals earlier this month.
The Babes protested the 4-0 defeat at the Aliu Mahama Sports Stadium on May 6 after claiming that Tamale City midfielder Isaac Mensah was ineligible to play in the match.
Ignatius Osei Fosu’s side alleged that Mensah was double registered under the name of Jireh Kojo Nissi, although his club denied the accusations.
The GFA Disciplinary Committee has now dismissed the case after investigations proved that Mensah was in fact properly registered, although a probe into Nissi is ongoing.
“The Disciplinary Committee, however, ruled that the player who played in the said match was duly qualified to play,” a statement from Ghanaian football’s governing body said.
“The GFA Prosecutor has, however, been tasked to investigate the registration of Jireh Kojo Nissi and locate and charge all guilty parties in his registration.”
