Second-tier Smart FC to report Pure Joy to FIFA over Asante’s cash

Second-tier Smart FC to report Pure Joy to FIFA over Asante’s cash

Second-tier side Smart FC have threatened to drag Pure Joy to FIFA over the non-payment of onward transfer fee owe them from the sale of Uriah Asante.

The 19-year-old exciting enforcer joined the Tunisian giants on a three-year deal for a reported $600,000 but the delay in paying 25% share of the onward fee has infuriated club owner Frederick Quainoo.

The club’s bankroller says they are due 25% share from the transfer fee of the player per the contract signed between the two clubs in 2009.

The Accra-based side claim Pure Joy have failed to respond to their calls and wants the World governing body to take action against them.

“We have done our checks well at the GFA and can confirm that Uriah has been transferred duly to Etoile Sahel of Tunisia and for that matter we demand our share as per the contract agreement between Smart FC and Pure Joy FC,” Quainoo told

“There is clear evidence the player’s ITC has been sent to the Tunisian outfit by the GFA and so TT Brothers cannot deny his sale,”

“We have all the documents regarding the contract and expect TT Brothers to be a gentleman and respect the agreement,”

“It’s unfair how people behave in this part of the world when issues of contract are being handled; all we are looking for is justice and our share of the transfer fee,”

The Prampram-based side signed Asante in 2009 and paid a paltry GH¢2,000 for his services.
