Former Anorthosis official guilty in Uzoho case

Nigerian national Francis Uzoho

Former Anorthosis deputy chairman Kyriacos Yiangou was sentenced to four months in jail on Tuesday after the court found him guilty of supplying goalkeeper Francis Uzoho with a health card prematurely.

Yiangou, a doctor, was sentenced to four months in jail and was suspended from football for three years.

Uzoho, a goalkeeper, was acquired by Anorthosis on the last day of the January transfer period 2019 and rival club Apollonas said he had only arrived in Cyprus the day prior to their match. The Limassol-based club questioned how Uzoho could have had his health card issued as he had arrived on the island about an hour after the Cyprus Sports Association’s (KOA) offices closed.

Following the appeal, Apollonas also reported to police that the medical card used was probably forged.
