The Algerian outfit has been banned for failing to pay transfer fee of striker Kwame Poku to Asante Kotoko.

Opoku joined the Algiers based side in April 2021 from the Ghanaian giants in a deal reported to be around US$300,000 in a four-and-a-half-year contract.

But the Algerian club are yet to settle Kotoko since completing the signing of the highly-rated forward.

However, the two-time African Champions who seems not be happy reported the conduct of the Algerian club to FIFA.

It is believed FIFA ordered USM Alger to pay Asante Kotoko an amount of €300,000 with interest for the transfer of Kwame Poku but failed to adhere to the directives of the world football governing body.

However, according to Kumasi based Oyerepa FM, FIFA has imposed a transfer ban on the club until they redeem themselves.

The 22-year-old scored nine goals in 20 appearances for Kotoko during his short spell at the club before leaving for Algeria.
