Controversial Ghanaian football administrator Alhaji Grusah has succumbed to fate and is asking fans of King Faisal to offer prayers to help save the club from the dangers of relegation.
Faisal, 2005 CAF Confederation Cup group stage campaigners, are facing relegation from the Ghanaian elite division after amassing just 19 points from 20 games – an average of 0.95 points per game.
Grusah appears to have thrown in the towel despite having 14 games more to end the season and has conceded that only prayers might save his side from the drop.
“I’m asking members of the club to help King Faisal in prayers because we have done everything possible to win games but the balls are simply not entering the post. Against AshantiGold we hit the back of the post and crossbar on a couple of occasions. The ball just refused to go in. I am making a passionate plea to my Muslim brothers to remember King Faisal in your Ramadan prayers,” he told Accra-based Peace FM.
Faisal were reinstated into the Ghana Premier League together with Accra Great Olympics via a GFA elective congress decision in October 2019.
Some Ghanaian elite football watchers believe the Insha Allah boys could not prepare themselves enough to start the season.
