Ghana midfielder Bernard Kumordzi says miscommunication led to his extra one month suspension for testing positive for using banned substances in Belgium.
The KV Kortrijk midfielder, who finished serving a four month ban was handed an extra month suspension for violating the terms of return.
“Everything was in Dutch I did not know I was not allowed to train with the team, I did three trainings and 45 minutes practice match, that was all I was not well informed my lawyer just said I was suspended for four months, without further explanation,” the midfielder explains.
“Beware, that man did his job well, I could have gotten a much longer suspension, and it was just a miscommunication.”
“I was especially disappointed. When you are suspended for four months, that end date is of course constantly in your head.
“I first went back to Ghana for two weeks, I had been strong for four months, so I could handle that month, even if it was difficult.”
