World football governing body, FIFA has slapped a Ghanaian Second Division Club, Platini FC with a transfer ban for failing to comply with a decision by the Player Status Committee.

The Ashanti Region-based club has been handed a transfer ban of up to 3 years due to an unpaid debt to Portuguese club Sporting Clube da Covilhã (S.C. Covilhã) from January 2018

Platini FC was adjudged to owe S.C. Covilhã an amount of EUR 16,250 (GHS115,476.78) plus 5% interest per annum. The judgement was dealt with Platini FC in February 2020 along with a transfer ban.

However, Platini FC failed to comply leading the Portuguese club to petition FIFA to punish the club further.

FIFA then decided that an additional transfer ban would be appropriate leading them to write to the club and the GFA. The ban will end if Platini FC settle their debt with S.C. Covilhã
