'Neglected' Eric Bekoe vows to leave Berekum Chelsea under Bossman Rule
By Patrick Akoto
Local Ghanaian clubs have been on red alert after Berekum Chelsea striker Eric Bekoe revealed he will leave the club under the Bossman Rule when he recovers from his injury.
The 27-year-old has undergone a successful operation on his broken knee at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital.
But the former Ghana goal king claims Chelsea have neglected him since he suffered the horrible injury and has personally paid for his medical expenses.
He has also claimed the Blues have not paid him his salary for the past 8 months – which has prompted him to leave the club when he gets back on his feet.
“For eight good months that I have been sidelined by injury, my club Berekum Chelsea have ceased to pay my salaries. It is rather their PRO who calls to check on me from time to time,” he told Metro FM.
“Right now I think I have exceeded the Bossman rule, per the sort of treatment meted out to me, so what I have to do after regaining my fitness is to appear before the Player Status Committee for my floating.
“There are so many clubs knocking at my door for my services both locally and internationally.”
Bekoe became a household name in Ghana after scoring 42 goals all season for the Porcupine Warriors in 2008 which earned him a big money move to Egyptian side Petojet.
But recurrent injuries robbed him of the chance to become a big hit in the North African country, forcing him to return to his native country.
