We will no longer sign 'old' players - Berekum Chelsea chief Oduro Sarfo

Published on: 08 August 2014
Berekum Chelsea's signing of Baba Amando was a spectacular failure

Berekum Chelsea’s General Manager Oduro Sarfo says the club will no longer be signing ‘old’ players due to their bad influence on the younger ones.

The Blues have been over the years a safe haven for several Ghanaian players who failed to cut it abroad and are looking for a platform to relaunch their careers.

Players such as Baba Adamu Amando, Charles Taylor are some of the notable spectacular failures of Chelsea’s then-model to attach experience to their squad which often came with heavy financial commitments.

But the club’s general manager says this policy has been abandon since the ‘old’ players turn to have a bad influence on the budding ones they look to bring through.

“There are a lot of young boys all around with bright futures in football but these old players come in to influence them with their bad attitudes,” he told Skyy Power FM.

“This is very bad. Instead of the players to guide the young ones, they turn themselves into rebel leaders and start dictating to officials. This must stop.

“Chelsea for instance will not be taking that route anymore. The modern day football is for the youth.

“The old ones should go into coaching or administration or other areas but not continue to play and badly influence the young ones.”

Chelsea escaped relegation by the skin of their teeth and will be looking to avoid such a torrid fight in the coming season.
