FAZ deducts 3 points from Lusaka dynamos FC over foreign player’s impasse

Sports FAZ deducts 3 points from Lusaka dynamos FC over foreign player’s impasse

The Football Association of Zambia(FAZ) has taken away three points from Super Division side Lusaka Dynamos after the club was found guilty of failure to honour employment obligations towards Ghanaian player Abdul Latif Mohammed.

FAZ General Secretary Adrian Kashala has disclosed that the World football governing body, FIFA has in its correspondence to Football House dated April 24, 2019 directed that the three points be taken from Lusaka Dynamos or face sanctions.

Kashala said this follows after Mohammed reported Lusaka Dynamos to FIFA for failure to pay him his salary and allowances leading him to terminate his contract.

He said on March 8, 2019, the FIFA disciplinary Committee ruled that Mohammed be paid his dues with Lusaka Dynamos ordered to forfeit three points from the log as part of the punishment.

Kashala said FIFA in the letter requested Football House to immediately implement the aforementioned decision and provide our services with the proof of the points deduction.

He said the FIFA disciplinary committee may pronounce an appropriate sanction against FAZ which can lead to the expulsion from FIFA competitions.

Kashala said FAZ has since warned Zambian clubs engaging foreign players to ensure that they meet their obligations toward the players.

After this development, Lusaka Dynamos which is in Stream A has 23 points three points behind leaders Zanaco who have 26 points.
