FA charge not a big deal – Frank Nelson

Board member of Accra Hearts of Oak Frank Nelson says the charges levelled against the club for misconduct by the Ghana Football Association (GFA) are exaggerated.

The football governing body on May 31, 2017 charged Hearts of Oak for a breach of articles 82 (1) and 82 (4) of the second amendment of the GFA statutes in respect of their match against Liberty Professionals on match day 16 in the Ghana League.

Midfielder Leonard Tawiah was adjudged man of the match and presented with a mobile phone from a competitor of Electroland Ghana, who are the official sponsor of the NASCO player and coach of the month award.

However, the Ghana FA feels this has put them at risk of breaching its agreement but Frank Nelson thinks otherwise.

“I don’t think this is a big deal. We [Hearts of Oak] have been charged by the association we belong to. I think this is an internal affair. The only thing left for us to look at it and see if there is anywhere we have breached the regulation or status,” Frank told Ultimate FM.

“If we feel that has been done, we can withdraw and as quickly as possible renegotiate with our sponsors and find a way to redeem the situation,” he added.
