Libyan Giants Ittihad Tripoli Join Chase for Asante Kotoko Striker Kwame Poku

Kwame Poku’s is attracting suitors from all over the Arab world with Libyan giants Ittihad Triploi being the latest to have joined the chase for the striker.

Reliable sources in Libya have disclosed to footballmadeinghana.com that the giants have officially written to Asante Kotoko to inquire about the availability of the player.

Footballmadeinghana.com understands that the former Libya Premier League winners have proposed a loan deal of 6 month for the Ghanaian striker with an option to make the deal permanent if Poku impresses.

The Tripoli side will be the latest from the Maghrebian world to have officially tabled bids for the former Nkoranza Warriors striker.

Egyptian giants Zamalek were the first to have requested for the boy but negotiations were not conclusive before the closure of the Egyptian transfer window.

The deal to Zamalek hit a snag with Algerian side USM Alger offering a lucrative deal for the wonderful finisher.

With USM Alger tabling a mouthwatering offer for the striker. Ittihad Tripoli are likely to have their offer turned down.

Opoku has been outstanding for the Porcupine Warriors in the Ghana Premier League this season having scored 7 goals in 14 games.

He also scored when Asante Kotoko played Algerian side ES Sétif in the CAF Confederation Cup play-off round.

The Kumasi based club has already received an official request from Ittihad Tripoli and may be responding in the coming days.

Opoku is part of the Ghana squad training ahead of this month’s 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifications.

FIFA Officially Bans Chad From All Football Activities For Life

FIFA Officially Bans Chad From All Football Activities For Life

Global football governing body, FIFA has banned Chad from football until further notice. The decision was taken by the Bureau of the Fifa Council on Wednesday and takes effect immediately.

Note that in December 2020, Fifa had rejected a request from the country’s ministry of sports to dissolve the Chadian Football Federation.

On March 10, the minister for youth and sports released a statement to prevent the Chadian Football Association, FTFA, from performing its obligatory duties due to a dispute between both parties.

CAF then disqualified Chad from the Africa Cup of Nations qualification race, just a few days prior to their fixtures against Namibia and Mali, following the sport Minister’s actions. FIFA has now waded in, banning the country henceforth.

FIFA says the ban was as a result of government interference in the football operations of the African country but announced that the suspension will be reversed as soon as the relevant government decisions have been revoked.

“The Bureau of the Fifa Council decided to suspend the Chadian Football Association (FTFA) with immediate effect due to government interference,” a statement from the Fifa website read.

“The suspension was prompted by the recent decisions of Chadian government authorities to permanently withdraw the powers delegated to the FTFA, establish a national committee for the temporary management of football and seize control of the FTFA’s premises.

“The suspension will be lifted once the relevant government decisions have been repealed and the FTFA and its management, led by president Moctar Mahamoud Hamid, have confirmed to Fifa that the FTFA premises are again under its control.”
