Kingsley Sarfo was convicted in Sweden where he was plying his trade for Malmo FF for sexual assault which saw him in prison for a year and over.

On 30 September 2017, the midfielder was requested to be arrested following accusations of one case of attempted rape, and two cases of statutory rape.

As a result of the arrest, Sarfo was suspended from playing for Malmö FF, a suspension that was lifted on 11 January 2018 awaiting the legal process to be completed but he was once again arrested by the Swedish police, suspected of five cases of statutory rape

He was sentenced to 2 years and 8 months in prison, along with a fine of 150,000 SEK and deportation after having served his jail sentence.

The 26-year-old believes, his club could have been of great help to him, instead they turned their back at him.

“I was stunned with how the club treated me after I was accused of rape,” he told Kumasi based Pure FM.

“Even Zlatan Ibrahimovic who has served the country has issues with them.

“A player of Malmo FF was in the same situation I was but the club stood by him and fought the case to the end but in my case, I was left alone.

“For me, I think they are ungrateful because I never deserve what I went through but the club was unconcerned and even terminated my contract but I thank God I am finally out.”

Malmö FF confirmed the signing of Sarfo in a press conference in 2017,scoring a goal on his debut for the Swedish outfit but his contract was terminated after he was found guilty in 2018
