Ghana's No. 1

"Hearts and Kotoko don't deserve more than anyone"- Alhaji Grusah calls for equal share of sponsorship money

Published on: 05 August 2022

Bankroller of Ghana Premier League side, King Faisal, Alhaji Karim Grusah has rejected claims that Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko should receive a bigger share of the sponsorship money from betPawa. 

betPawa have been announced the headline sponsors of the Ghana Premier League and have invested a whooping $6 million in the domestic topflight.

“The FA cannot distribute the money anyhow they want. Who are they [Hearts and Kotoko]?” he said on Angel FM.

“Teams that don’t even know administration. Are they premier league teams or super premier division teams?

“If so, they should play their own league and let other clubs play theirs too. They don’t deserve more money than anyone.”

Alhaji Grusah's attention was drawn to the numbers of the two glamorous clubs in the country, but vehemently rejected such statements, insisting they have nothing to show for it.

"Which numbers? The way I manage my team, Kotoko and Hearts can’t. I’m going to check from the FA if such a proposal has been made," he continued.

“They can’t say that nonsense to us. No team players with 12 players on the pitch. Hearts and Kotoko don’t even own stadiums. If they think they are big clubs, they are big clubs in their homes only.

“I call on all the clubs not to agree to such an arrangement, otherwise let’s leave the league for those two clubs to play.”
