Grusah condemns handling of Stephen Appiah
Owner of Ghanaian Premier League side King Faisal, Alhaji Grusah, has condemned the disrespectful manner in which former Ghana captain Stephen Appiah was handled during Ghana’s 2014 World Cup qualifier against Sudan last Sunday.
Appiah was bullied by security personnel when he tried to enter the VIP lounge at the Baba Yara Stadium in Ghana’s 4-0 victory.
The former Juventus star was among ex internationals lined-up by the Ghanaian Ministry of Sports to motivate the Black Stars before their game in Kumasi.
It took the intervention of Asante Kotoko financier Kennedy Agyapong and other football dignitaries to resolve the issue before the former Fenerbahçe man into rescinding his decision to leave the Stadium.
Grusah who was at venue expressed worry over the treatment melted out to Appiah.
“We’ve to condemn what happened to our former captain Stephen Appiah in Kumasi. I wasn’t happy at all how he was treatment by the security personnel,” he told Accra-based Happy FM.
