SAFA CEO Advocate 'Laughed' As Ghanaian Football Association Imposed A 'Heavy Fine'.

As we all know that the South African football association is not giving up on their aspirations of playing in Qatar next year. In doing so they launched an investigation against the Senegalese match official Maguette Ndiaye of match-fixing and match-manipulation, this includes the malicious penalty which was converted by Andre Ayew.

However, the Fifa board couldn't make rash decisions without consulting the Ghana FA. The GFA indicated that the South African football Association didn't follow the right procedures when filing their complaint and fifa must dismiss the case and throw a heavy fine to Nasrec.

“It is shocking, irresponsible, and outright disrespect to note that our colleagues from South Africa Football Association (with whom we have good relationships with and mutual sporting respect) have chosen to spread falsehoods to the media rather than project the real picture of events before, during and after the Game,” GFA responded to SAFA.

It was at this moment when the SAFA CEO got touched about the accusations the GFA has been saying about them. It has been reported that Tebogo Motlanthe didn't say much about the The Ghanaian Football Association but he responded to them in a nice manner as he awaits the fifa president to come out with the final decision.

According to PSL news “ South African football association (SAFA) CEO Advocate Tebogo Motlanthe has laughed off the offensive statements from the Ghanaian Football Association that fifa should “heavy fine” SAFA for filing a complaint to CAF and fifa about their dissatisfaction of the officiating in the game between Bafana-Bafana and Ghana, at the Cape Coast stadium in Ghana.

Montlante also reminded the GFA that he's not only worried or concerned about the penalty only but the overall decision which was taken by the Referee in accordance with article 18 of the FIFA statutes, which deal with match manipulation and officiating bias.

However, as we still await the Fifa' s decision, the World Cup 2022 play-offs draw is set to kick off in Qatar by the 18th of December. Which is 3 weeks from today, and it keeps on bringing creeps to the safa board and the rest of Mzansi as they feel like time is moving forward. 


I think that Bafana Bafana will be given a replay because they have more evidence than the GFA and it has already been proven that 90% of the Referee's decision against Bafana Bafana were incorrect, so all they have to do is pray and hope for the best. 

What is your view about this matter? Do you think that Bafana Bafana deserve a replay or not? Don't forget to leave your thoughts in the comment section.
