“I stand by WAFA’s decision” – Fred Claye
The Chief Executive Officer for Sheffield United football club, Fred Clay (in photo), has told journalists that he still holds onto the decision of the Western Area Football Association for awarding a point each to both his team and Brookfields United on grounds of a protest filed in by the latter.
He said Brookfields United protested against his side Sheffield United for using two illegal players in an encounter between the two early in June this year.
He furthered that he is of the belief that WAFA is the custodian of running the 1st Division football league in Freetown and that they have the full powers and rights to make decision and punish teams that falls violate; 1stand 2nd division and Female leagues respectively.
He said it is likely obvious that the FA does not know it’s responsibilities. He refers to the FA as witch hunting his team thus preventing it promotion to the premier side.
The former Brookfields United Manager said he believes in principles and has observed that the FA has not been abiding to football principles.
According to him, WAFA sent a written document to both teams, informing them that they’ve both secured a point each even before the conclusion of the league.
“It is against this that my team fought it hard to the playoff. We came first in our group with maximum points,” Fred said.
He said the decision of the WAFA Chairman, Alim Awoko Sesay, was done out of bias, noting that the FA has hidden motive against his team.
