GFA Fines Kotoko Coach For Misconduct
The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has fined Seydou Zerbo, the head coach of Asante Kotoko Sporting Club for misconduct.
The Burkinabe will be paying GHc2,000 as a fine.
He is said to have misconducted himself in the betPawa Premier League.
On November 3, 2022, after the match between Kotoko and Bechem United FC, he is said to have attempted to assault the match officials and made certain gestures which in the opinion of the Association could likely have put the game into disrepute.
The Disciplinary Committee of the Association found his action to be contrary to Article 34(6)(d) of the GFA Premier League Regulations.
He pleaded guilty to the charges before the Committee chaired by Osei Kwadwo Adow.
The Club reportedly pleaded with the Committee to consider him as a first-time offender and to assure the Association that the Club will continue to educate both players and technical team members on positive ways of reacting during matches.
He was therefore slapped with a GHC2,000 fine.
“SEYDOU ZERBO is warned that any future misconduct may result in a more severe punishment”, a part of the Committee decision read.
Other members of the Committee who sat on the case included Emmanuel Nikoi, Justice Yeboah, Lorraine Crabbe Ababio, Nathaniel Laryea and William Bossman.
