“I am innocent about this scandal and for me, this ban will not stand," Osei told Kumasi-based Pure FM.
“My lawyers are working to appeal the ban I am confident I will be exonerated because I am clean and innocent about this case.
“We played a competitive game and I don’t know I have been banned for 30 months. This will not stand,” he added.
AshantiGold SC has been demoted to Division Two with a fine of Ghc100,000.
