Angry FC Zurich chief flays Brighton over botched Dwamena deal

President of FC Zurich, Ancillo Canepa has labelled the behavior of Brighton “amateurish and unprofessional” over the collapsed £10m signing of Raphael Dwamena.

The leader of the Swiss side hit out at the Seagulls for abandoning the deal for the 21-year-old Ghana striker when medical checks revealed a heart problem.

Zurich’s own tests in the spring identified an issue, which they did not deem serious enough to stop Dwamena continuing his career.

Canepa, speaking after Zurich’s 1-1 draw with Lucerne, labelled Albion’s behaviour “amateurish and unprofessional” in interviews with the Swiss media.

He said: “There are always a lot of differences between the players,” Canepa said in interviews with the Swiss media

“It is crucial whether these are performance-reducing or harmful to health.

“I am glad Raphael is back, because we have ambitious goals.”

The Seagulls use MRI scans when a problem is highlighted after initial testing and a top specialist to review the results.

Zurich are conducting fresh medical tests on Dwamena before releasing him for World Cup qualifying duty with Ghana.
