Ex-Ghana star Samuel Osei Kuffour believes the time is right for Alhaji Karim Grusah to step aside and entrust his team, King Faisal, into the hands of competent people to manage.
Kuffour is not happy with the way his boyhood club is being run. The club is in deep financial crisis and that has affected their performance on the field.
According to Kuffour, he and some other former players like Yussif Chibsah and Ibrahim Tanko are willing to help if Alhaji decides to involve them.
“He knows what I did for the club those days but since then he hasn’t approached. Me, [Ibrahim] Tanko and [Yussif] Chibsah have a conversation every day about King Faisal,” Kuffour said on Joy FM.
We talk about things we can do to help but is Alhaji [Grusah] ready [to allow us]? We cannot go to Alhaji and say give us King Faisal. It is not possible. Support is different. If you are giving one cedi or two cedis, that is different. If you want me to get involved with the team, we need to sit down and talk properly.”
“Now where is the league and where is King Faisal? Alhaji is 75 years I know. Would Alhaji sit down for people to run King Faisal for him? He will not.
Alhaji should call people who have the knowledge and connection to run the team. Look at Ibrahim Tanko, look at Chibsah, and look at myself. There are a lot of people out there who can help but we cannot just go there and tell him. It doesn’t work like that.”
Before the league was suspended due to the coronavirus outbreak, King Faisal occupy the last position with no win from 14 games.
