This was never go­ing to go well, Razak

The Hamilton Spectator - - SPORTING LIFE - THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Ghana goal­keeper Razak Brimah has been fined $2,500 for an ex­ple­tive-laden tirade in a video posted on so­cial me­dia dur­ing the African Cup of Na­tions that was aimed at fans who had crit­i­cized his per­for­mances.

The Ghana Foot­ball As­so­ci­a­tion an­nounced the pun­ish­ment on Tues­day, two days ahead of Ghana’s African Cup semi­fi­nal match against Cameroon in Gabon. Razak will be able to play in that game.

Razak posted a video on his Face­book page on Mon­day where he re­sponds to the ap­par­ent crit­i­cism, uses ex­ple­tives reg­u­larly, and tells crit­ics to “go to hell.” A day ear­lier, he played in Ghana’s win over Congo in the quar­ter-fi­nals.

The GFA says Razak had made a writ­ten apol­ogy, while the fed­er­a­tion also of­fered “an un­qual­i­fied apol­ogy to the gen­eral pub­lic.”
