Former Harambee Stars coach banned for life

Former Harambee Stars head coach Paul Put has been banned for life by the Guinea Football Federation (Feguifoot) and a seven-year suspension on the federation's vice president, Amadou Diaby.

According to the BBC, Feguifoot's ethics commission ruled that both Put and Diaby had allegedly breached the institution's code of ethics and its code of discipline.

Put joined Guinea after parting ways with Harambee Stars last year and was in charge of the West Africa nation at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations where they exited the tournament in the round of 16.

Amadou Diaby has denied any wrong-doing through his lawyer, Malick Ibrahim who said: "We believe that the facts stated are not true and we're convinced our client has not been treated fairly in this process," Ibrahim told local media.


"We will contest this decision to clear the name of Amadou Diaby even if it means going to the international body tasked with sports litigations," Ibrahim said.

Feguifoot's has ordered Put to pay 100,000 euros while Amadou Diaby has been fined 25,000 euros this coming after the Belgian was sacked last month.

Put has not responded publicly as yet to Feguifoot's decision to ban him from all football-related activity in Guinea for life.
