Berekum Chelsea withdraw protest against Karela

Berekum Chelsea have backed down on a protest against Karela United for allegedly fielding two ineligible players in their 2017/18 Ghana Premier League matchday 6 clash.

The game which was played at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium on Wednesday April 18, had the debutants snatching a 1-0 victory through Bismark Boamah.

Berekum Chelsea had believed Karela fielded Donald Koboh-Koboh Wellington and Ourega Jean Vital – both Sierra Leonean and Ivorian internationals – against them without fulfilling Article 27(1)(f).

But in a letter signed by director Nana Oduro Sarfo to the General Secretary of the Ghana Football Association on Friday April 20, 2018 sighted by, the club has taken a u-turn saying:

“After careful consideration, the management of Berekum Chelsea Football Club have decided not to continue with the protest any longer.”

“We believe points must be won on the field and not in the boardroom.

Berekum Chelsea also rendered an apology to Karela United while urging the GFA to amend its records with their withdrawal.

“We apologize to Karela United Football Club for the psychological trauma our action might have caused within its rank and file,” the letter read.

Another club is reported to have a similar protest filed against Karela who have been unbeaten in their last five games (W4, D1).
