A member of the Executive Council of Ghana Football Association who doubles as the Chief Executive Officer of Premier League side, Berekum Chelsea, Nana Oduro Sarfo has affirmed he’s an enemy of Ghana football.
Oduro Sarfo in an interview with Saddick Adams on Angel FM and TV’s Floodlight Sports rubbished concerns by football lovers who complained about the bad nature of the pitch in Berekum Golden City Park which hosted Ghanaian heavyweight, Asante Kotoko who travelled from Kumasi to play against Chelsea.
According to the self-acclaimed astute football administrator, most players in the premier league are used to playing on ”Sakora” parks so the concerns of people about the pitch in Berekum is neither here nor there. ”The footballers who played on the pitch are they not the same payers who play on sakora pitches. Are they not playing on Monday Special Sakora pitches?” he quizzed
When the host drew his attention to the precious time given to him in his capacity as a board member of the football association, he angrily rebutted by choosing a Nigerian movie he’s watching over discussing football concerns. ”You can say whatever you want to say, I don’t care. I didn’t beg you to call me. I am watching a Nigerian movie now, that’s precious to me” he said.
He added that what matters to him is about successfully hosting Asante Kotoko on the bad pitch and whoever has issues should go ahead and take the maximum three points for the Kumasi based club. ”I have finished playing the game, if you have qualms go and collect the points. Nobody has tasked you to enquire why we played football on that pitch. If pictures are going around, what hasn’t happened before” he added.
Oduro Sarfo continued his lamentations and angrily hanged up on the host with the excuse that he’s been disrespected by the host.
”I am an Ex-Co member and so what?
Is football dead, why don’t you face the reality. I have finished playing the game, go and collect the points. 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” he further stated
