Ghana Football Association Executive Council member Nana Oduro Sarfo has courted public anger after publicly belittling talks about the state of the Berekum Golden City Park.
Football fans in the West African nation across all divide questioned the nature and state of the Golden City Park when pictures surfaced on social media on Saturday ahead of the Ghana Premier League match day 2 clash between Chelsea and Kotoko.
Camera images from the game has been described by experts as unfit for purposes such as marketing and branding while it also distorts football’s game flow.
But, the Ghana FA ExCo member who is a top official of Berekum Chelsea has courted public anger and disaffection for the football association by rubbishing all concerns raised about the nature of the pitch.
“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.
Berekum Chelsea shared the spoils with Kotoko in the game which saw experienced striker Emmanuel Clottey scoring a last-gasp finish from a free-kick after Kwame Opoku had opened the scoring for the Porcupine Warriors in the first-half.
Clottey’s celebration antics has been described as disrespectful and unsportsmanlike by most fans after he took off his jersey, brandished it at the Kotoko bench before hauling it at them. He has since apologised for his actions.
