Rodney Michael who was controversially disqualified said he was “in total shock” and referred to it as “a political interference into the running of football”.
According to Reuters from London, he called the suspension “a witch-hunt because I am leading a crusade for the FA to hold its annual congress which is stated in the constitution to (be held) not later than August this year”.
In a press release signed by the Sports Minister Paul Kamara and the Sierra Leone Football Association’s (SLFA) President, Isha Johansen it was stated that some top football officials in the country and four players are now a subject to investigation by SLFA and the Sports Ministry.
The said match was the FIFA World Cup 2010 Preliminary fixtures, South Africa host Sierra Leone 21st July, 2008.
