MoYS Spokesperson aims swipe at stranded Ghanaian players in Ethiopia

Spokesperson for the Ministry of Youth and Sports (MoYS) in Ghana, Kofi Asare Brako has taken a swipe at the 22 Ghanaian players stranded in Ethiopia who were captured in a video circulating on the internet.

The video which went viral on Tuesday saw the players pleading to be moved back to Ghana following the suspension of football in Ethiopia due to the outbreak of coronavirus.

But speaking to Kumasi-based Y FM, Kofi Asare Brako has questioned the rationale behind the viral video shared by the players.

“It’s unfortunate that out of 22 players nobody could reason  to that extent that it is not good to put this thing out there”

“Now we’ve not had the same situation with Nigerian players, Togo players but they equally have players playing in other countries, so why should this thing happen at this moment,” Asare Brako quizzed.

Despite raising concerns he maintains that steps have been initiated by Government to assist the 22 players.

“We’ll do our best possible to make sure we’ll meet them halfway. What it means is that if we do it for Ethiopia today, are we going to do it for other players in other countries all over the world?

“That is one challenge. So we are extra as to how best we are able to solve this issue.

“The Minister was touched by their plight so let’s see probably by close of the day on Friday we should be able to get a clear antidote as to how best we can help them”.

The 22 players included Lee Addy, Kweku Andoh, Latif Mohammed, Muntari Tagoe, Rahim Osman, and Tuffour Frimpong.
