JUST IN: FIFA orders Kotoko to be relegated next month if they fail to pay Esperance


FIFA has ordered that Kumasi Asante Kotoko must be relegated from the Ghana Premier League by next month if the Porcupine Warriors fail to pay $180,00o to Tunisian giants Esperance.

The Porcupine Warriors have just just 18 days to settle the long standing debt or they will be playing in Ghana’s second tier league and will still be required to pay the debt.

The Kumasi-based giants were ordered to pay Esperance by 6 April or the Ghana FA will be ordered to relegate the two-time African champions to the Division One League.

According to a report in Light FM, the Porcupine Warriors have received the letter from the world governing body and the Ghana FA has also been informed of the impending sanction.

Kotoko now have just over two weeks to mobile the whopping $180,000 to pay the FIFA fine over the transfer of former Berekum Chelsea striker Emmanuel Clottey.
