Ex Black Stars player and former Marseille great, Abedi Ayew Pele has indicated that he ‘was completely zoned’ in relations to Bernard Tapie comments about him.
The former Marseille president told Le Monde that he used ‘mafia’ tactics to sign the Ghanaian in 1987 from the sniff of AS Monaco as he tagged the player of having HIV/AIDS to kill off Monaco interest in Abedi Pele.
The Ghanaian when asked by Kasapa FM, a local based radio station in Accra-Ghana, said “I was completely zoned out with regards to that decision by whilom Olympique Marseille president Bernard Tapie”.
“I was totally oblivious when it comes to that issue but he went too far”.
“I feel he overstepped his boundaries if his real intention was to ward off competition from rivals”, he added.
“I am very glad the truth has been revealed now, making whatever was said impertinent”, Abedi Pele continued.
Abedi Pele was part of the trophy laden Marseille as they won their first Champions League in 1993.
