Former Ashanti Gold coach, Kasim Gokyildiz, has given the Ghana Football Association (GFA) the next seven days to apologise for claiming his certificate is unverifiable.

The GFA revoked the coaching license after the country’s football governing body claimed they were not able to verify his certificate from the German Football Federation and the Turkish Football Federation.

The 54-year-old Turkish German trainer has since been let go by the Miners.

“I want the Ghana FA to issue an apology to retract that statement on my certificate in the next seven working days,” Gokyildiz has told Kumasi FM.

“The GFA has defamed me with such untrue statement which I want them to retract immediately.

“I will drag them to FIFA if they fail to do so. Yes, I mean it. I never lied about my UEFA license ‘A’ certificate issued by the Turkish Football Federation.

“That statement can end my coaching career and they must retract it.”

The coach insisted on the authenticity of his licence and posted a copy on social media.

Assistant coach Yakubu Mohammed has been handed temporary charge of Ashanti Gold who held Asante Kotoko to a 0-0 draw in the Ghana Premier League (GPL) on Sunday.

The Miners currently sit joint-top of the table.
