According to what Ghpage.com gathers, the 28year old Ghanaian defender, Samuel Inkoom has been banned by FIFA for one year.Ghana defender was found guilty of cheating an agent in a transfer deal back in 2014.
The Ghana defender was ordered to pay creditor Curtis Willet $65,000 or failure to do that will serve a one-year ban.
Inkoom failed to pay the agent his full share of the money after he was transferred from Ukrainian side Dnipro three years ago.
The agent followed up severally for his share and an agreement was reached eventually between Inkoom and his new agent to have the footballer pay the amount slowly every month.But that was on a condition that, failure to default in any of the month could result in a ban.
Unfortunate for Inkoom, his lucrative contract with Antalyaspor was mutually terminated for lack of game time forcing him to move to Bulgarian side Vereya.
In Bulgaria, the former Kotoko defender failed to pay the stipulated monthly allowance allowing the agent to contact FIFA who in turn triggered the ban on the defender.
The Bulgarian Football Union’s Disciplinary Commission sat on the player’s case when it first started in 2014 before it went to FIFA.
“In view of the notification dated 20.06.2017, pursuant to item 4 the decision of the FIFA Disciplinary Committee of 15.12.2014, DS of BFU imposed to Samuel Inkoom- a former competitor of FC ‘Vereya’ Stara Zagora punishment suspension of competition rights for a period of one (one) year or until the date of payment of the entire amount owed to the creditor,” part of the ruling from FIFA read.
The under 20 world cup winner has capped 46 to his name for the senior national team, the Black Stars.
