Top Swedish club fires convicted Ghana international

June 12, 2018

MALMO, Sweden (AP) — Top Swedish club Malmo FF has terminated the contract of Ghana international Kingsley Sarfo after he was found guilty of two cases of rape of an under-aged girl.

Malmo FF said Tuesday on its website the 23-year-old midfielder’s actions “are incompatible with the club’s values.”

A Swedish court last week sentenced Sarfo, who joined Malmo FF in 2016, to 32 months in prison for having sexual intercourse with a 14-year-old girl in an apartment and in a public toilet. The court also ordered him to pay 150,000 kronor ($17,260) in compensation to the girl, adding he should be deported after jail and banned from returning to Sweden for a 10-year period
