The Professional Footballers Association of Ghana – PFAG, has assisted some Ghanaian players who got stranded in Zimbabwe since January after they were lured and duped by a bogus agent.
Peter Tibila, 24, Francis Adjetey, 23, and John Adu Poku, 22, have been stuck in Chiredzi since then, after a man masquerading as a football agent collected US$800 from each of them upon arrival in Zimbabwe and promised them contracts with a club which would supposedly pay them signing on fees of up to US$10 000, monthly salaries of $2000 and winning bonuses amounting to $500, before disappearing.
The trio’s case was even made more complicated by the government’s enforcement of lockdown since March as a way of curbing the spread of the novel Covid-19, meaning they been holed up in the country since then as flights were suspended.
But the players’ mother body in Ghana, liaised with FUZ and ZIFA in assisting the players to return to their home country.
”@PFAGofficial has aided some stranded Ghanaian players in Zimbabwe to return to Ghana.” the Association tweeted on Friday afternoon.
