Michael Osei, the coach of Bibiani GoldStars, is unsatisfied with the suspension of the Ghana Premier League (GPL) as a result of AshantiGold’s injunction, as is to be expected.
The league is still suspended as a result of the Human Rights Court’s decision to postpone its ruling in the dispute between Ghana Football and AshantiGold.
“Very unfortunate, no one is happy about it but we have to manage it,” Osei reacted to Friday’s decision in an interview.
“As coaches, we need to improvise a lot on our training programmes to maintain the shape of the playing body.”
The lawsuit has been postponed until October 20, 2022, on that day.
The attorneys for AshantiGold submitted an additional document to support their request for an interlocutory injunction on Thursday, October 13.
The GFA’s attorneys countered that AshantiGold did not file the affidavit in accordance with the law at their appearance in court on October 14. However, AshantiGold’s attorneys contended that the GFA’s objection was improper.
AshantiGold’s supplemental affidavit was dismissed by the judge, Barbara Tetteh-Charwey, who found that both parties had made mistakes. On Monday, October 17, she allowed the Obuasi-based club to request for permission to file the supplemental affidavit.
On Thursday, October 20, she will hear the club’s request to submit the supplemental affidavit.
On October 20, the court will decide whether to grant Ashantigold’s request to submit an additional affidavit.
