Edubiase to punish AWOL striker Stephen Manu

New Edubiase United FC are set to wield the disciplinary axe on striker Stephen Manu who travelled to Brunei for trials without their consent.

Manu went AWOL from camp in the club's build-up to their league opener last week against Bechem United.

The 25-year-old returned home after the unnamed club could not reach an agreement over his transfer fee.

"Manu went overseas without officially informing any management member claiming he didn't have time on his side," Club president Abdul Salam Yakubu told Angel FM.

"He's still our registered player and received his salaries even in his absence and therefore we would have to sit down as management and offer a stiffer punishment.

"This is an act of unprofessionalism and we want to use this as a deterrent,"

Before his departure, the former Asante Kotoko player was on the verge of joining Hearts of Oak but the deal.

    I Thank God Kotoko has gotten rid of all these recalcitrant players who are not commited to any cause. They are only interested in money; players like Charles Taylor, Stephen Manu, Baba Armando, Dong Bortey, Hassan Mohammed, Prince Anokye etc are just economic players who are purely arrogant and do not give off their best for any team. We at Kotoko and Hearts have decided not to have anything to do with such players. The BA teams that are taking on these players should watchout before these players bring their teams down with indiscipline.
