The Normalisation Committee of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) and Tema Youth Soccer Club are locked up in a legal crossfire which could conclude up in the corridors of FIFA in the coming times.
Investigations by the Graphic Sports activities on the matter exposed that the founder and sporting director of Tema Youth FC, Wilfred Kweku Osei, is heading to FIFA to look for the intervention of the earth soccer governing human body.
Palmer’s conclusion is a swift response to a legal action reportedly taken by the solicitors of the FA’s caretaker system versus the club for failing to pay back 10 for each cent transfer payment to the GFA in respect of the the latest transfer of Joseph Paintsil.
The GFA is demanding its share of the landmark transfer fee of 3million euros acquired by Tema Youth from Belgian aspect, Genk, for the transfer of the Black Meteors striker last summer time.
When contacted, the Tema Youth manager confirmed the tale and reported he was only waiting for his lawyer’s suggestions for his subsequent line of motion.
Tema Youth are alleged to have signed an enterprise to shell out 10 for every cent of the transfer fee prior to the launch of the player’s Global Transfer Certification (ITC) by the GFA.
Even so, the club insists that FIFA regulations frowned on payment of dollars by clubs to their mum or dad associations for an ITC, that’s why its reluctance to perpetuate what it describes as an illegality.
Palmer hinted of heading to FIFA soon to look for interpretation to settle the dispute.
But the outspoken club administrator is handling the make a difference gingerly in view of his ambition to run for the next GFA presidential election.
When contacted, the president of the Normalisation Committee, Dr Kofi Amoah, declined to comment on the problem.
