Ghana Football Association has charged Bechem United defender Samuel Osei Kuffour following his unsporting conduct against Asante Kotoko striker Etouga Mbella in the goalless draw of Premier League at Bechem on Tuesday.
Kuffour after kicking the ball, deliberately stamped Etouga by the 22nd minute and went scot free since it happened at the blind side of referee Kennedy Padi and his assistants.
“The GFA Disciplinary Committee has charged Bechem United defender Samuel Osei Kuffour for a misconduct in the Ghana Premier League Matchday 19 game against Asante Kotoko,” a GFA statement read.
“Osei Kuffour is charged with a breach of Article 34(6)(d) of the GFA Premier League Regulations, 2019.
“According to the charge sheet, Samuel Osei Kuffour did intentionally kick player number 11 of Asante Kotoko SC (Frank Thierry Etouga Mbella) in an off-ball situation, an action which in the opinion of the association is an improper behavior and likely to bring the game into disrepute.
“The player is expected to respond to the charge by 5:00pm on Thursday, March 10, 2022 failing which the GFA Disciplinary Committee will proceed to adjudicate the case without his Statement of Defence,” the statement added.
If Osei Kuffour is found guilty, he could be given a three-match ban and some amount to be paid as a fine.
