The South African Football Brotherhood is still shocked after Fifa suddenly rejects South Africa's protest with a sudden one-liner, but the Ghana FA said the result was "The South African Football Association doesn't understand anything about football."

He despised that he showed that. Late Friday afternoon, the World Football Association Fifa finally terminated its confidentiality obligation 10 days later by declaring the South African Football Association (Safa) protest "unacceptable". 

The Fifa Disciplinary Commission had already met on November 23 to consider the protest after Bafana Bafana lost 10 times to the Black Star in Ghana on November 14. The protest was filed with Fifa on November 15.

FIFA has publicly acknowledged the receipt of the protest and said its disciplinary action will meet on November 23. Safa CEO Tebogo Motlanthe was a little confused by Fifa's violent reaction, but didn't explain it. 

"They (FIFA) only answered in one liner that our complaint was unacceptable," Motlante said. "We are still discussing how to proceed and formulate the answer. So far, that's all Fifa said in today's answer.

We need to clarify more before answering in detail. there is." According to some media reports, South Africa has 10 days to appeal, but the official document released by Safa to the domestic media does not say anything like that.

According to the document, Safa can ask for an explanation to deny the protest. In a statement from FIFA, "The judiciary can decide not to give a reason for the decision, but only to convey the wording of the decision.

The parties can decide within 10 days of receiving the terms of the decision. , The reason for the decision must be requested in writing, otherwise the decision will be final and binding (Article 51 of the Fifa Disciplinary Action). "

Meanwhile, Fifa in Ghana The announcement received great praise. The national media has published several reports praising the outcome of the protest in South Africa. In my head was Prosper Harrison Addo, the secretary general of the Ghana Football Association.

In an interview with LightFM, an ad-free online radio station, he was loud and proud when he looked down on Safa. He said South Africa did not accept the decision in good faith. "The South African Football Association has no knowledge of football and the case is a clear indication of how incompetent it is," Add said.

"They want to frustrate Ghana and we are focusing on the Afcon and FIFA World Cup playoffs." According to a Ghana-based report, South Africa will go to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) to challenge FIFA's decision on the protest. 

No one in Safa made this comment after the announcement of FIFA, but Motlante mentioned the possibility of contacting CAS a few days ago. While Safa was waiting for the result, he commented on Fifa's stone-like silence. Motlante said at the time: 

Fifa didn't say he would make a decision that day, so we're just giving them time to work. "You have a lot to do with it.

You can file a problem with CAS even if you don't give a good reason. So they like to do their job and we give them freedom.

" On Saturday, Safa President Danny Jordan and Motlante declined to comment on Add's ironic remarks and the organization's next move. However, Jordaan has informed IOL Sport that Safa will meet on Friday (December 10th) to decide how to proceed.
