Ghana Premier League side Berekum Chelsea have distance itself from comments made by its Chief Executive Officer Nana Oduro Sarfo during a radio interview.
The Ghana Football Association Executive Council member went bonkers in a live interview on radio about the nature of the pitch at the BerekumGolden City Park, stating that he prioritized watching Nigerian movies than discussing the worrying issue at hand.
”Some of the players even play on grassless pitches so what are you talking about? Nobody has asked you to call me. I’m watching Nigerian movie and that is more precious to me at this point. We have finished playing the game and I don’t care about anything anymore. If you don’t understand go and ‘collect’ the three points from us,” he told Accra-based Angel FM.
He added that ‘”Nobody has tasked you to enquire why we played football on that pitch. If pictures are going around, what hasn’t happened before.
”I did not take anybody’s money before playing the game. I invested in my own game. That’s it. Forget it.
”We have played the game on the pitch, if you’re unhappy we don’t care. We shall continue to play on the pitch.”
Concerns were raised about the nature of the Berekum pitch after photos emerged on social media ahead of the Ghana Premier League game between Chelsea and Asante Kotoko.
Berekum Chelsea have issued a statement to distance itself from the comments after a serious backlash from the fans.
