The former Ghana Football Association Presidential aspirant who doubles as the Chief Executive Officer of Asante Kotoko, Nana Yaw Amponsah has disclosed why Phar Rangers pulled out of all Ghana FA organized competitions.
The domestic football governing body Disciplinary Committee slapped Phar Rangers, Directors and shareholders with a five-year ban following their decision to withdraw from the league without just cause last month.
However, after a successful appeal, the Ghana FA Appeals Committee overturned the decision of the Disciplinary Committee to ban Nana Yaw Amponsah, a shareholder of Division One side Phar Rangers for the next five years.
On the other hand, the ban on Phar Rangers was upheld but was reduced with Phar Rangers demoted to Division Three.
They have also been banned from the MTN FA Cup for the next two-years.
Speaking to Asempa FM, Nana Yaw Amponsah indicated the club decided to pull out of the league to due to security issues.
“Recently they [PHAR Rangers] had some issues and decided to pull out [of GFA competitions]. My checks revealed that it was some security issues.
“I was briefed after management of PHAR Rangers decided to pull out of GFA competitions. They have able management. It was after the decision I was called upon to intervene for the club to rescind the decision.
“I leave the decision of the management of PHAR Rangers to decide on whether to play in the Division three or not.
