He was worried about 3 Asante Kotoko players who are still waiting for visas to join a club in Sweden.
“They are demanding for school certificates and weighing cards before they will be given a visas.
What happens to players who don’t have school certificates and those born in the villages without a weighing cards?, he explained to Happy FM on why players are refused visas.
He also added that
“The Swedish Embassy in Ghana is worrying our players . They’ve denied many talented players from pursuing their dreams outside”.
TheEx-Black Stars and Asante Kotoko player pleaded with government to intervene in the situation as it is cutting short the dreams of many Ghanaian players who want to seek greener pastures abroad.
“Government,Ministry of Youth and Sports and Ministry of Foreign Affairs must come on Board and address this issue because the treatment is unfair and unjust. Denying players with the right documents from traveling is bad”….
“We will petition the authorities to look into this matter because it’s very bad”
We hope this is resolved so all the players involved can fulfill their dreams.
