Kotoko Fined GH�11,000 For Indiscipline

The Disciplinary Committee of the Ghana Football Association has fined Premier League champions Asante Kotoko a total of GH�11,000 for three cases of misconduct. SuperSport.com can confirm that Kotoko was fined GH�5000 after the DC found some basis in the accusation that Berekum Chelsea official Oduro Safo was physically assaulted at half time when both teams met in a Premier League match on December 14 2011 in Kumasi. A copy of the judgment seen by SuperSport fines the reds 3000 cedis ($15000). This was for referee Joseph Lamptey�s alleged manhandling by Kotoko fans at half time during the same game. There is also a 3000 Ghana cedi ($15000) fine after Kotoko fans damaged equipment that was being used by OMP, the league�s rights holders, after the match. Kotoko insiders have told SuperSport.com that an appeal is forthcoming.
