The report further stated that the “fine and warning letter” to player Laffor comes from his refusal to play for his club team, Sundowns, under injection to relieve the pains after sustaining injury that will keep him away for seven games, but has accepted to play for his country (Liberia) despite 22 injections.

Meanwhile, Laffor has made a sharp reaction to his expulsion, describing it as shocking and blackmail.
