Ghanaian teenager Opoku Antwi has terminated his contract with Tunisian side Club Africain after accusing the club of looking down on black-skinned players.

The former Great Olympics and Bofoakwa Tano midfielder joined the Red and Whites a season ago but has struggled for playing time.

He told "Club Africain do not like black players at all. I always play better when even I come on as a substitute, I think the fans liked me very much, but the coach told me I can't play while real Tunisians are on the bench. For this reason, I have to quit the club.''

Antwi has joined CS Sfaxien who lie third on the Tunisian league table on a one-year deal.

"My brother once played here so the reception was very marvelous, I think I can stay here for long," he concluded.

Opoku is the younger brother of Black Stars and Al Sadd winger Opoku Agyeman.

    That is why Tunisian football will be in the doldrums. They need to let in some foreign talents so they can learn from them.
