West African Football Academy (WAFA) Operations Manager, George Ofosu Hene has indicated that ‘they are a production club’ so their main aim is ‘to produce and sell’.
WAFA based in Sogakope are currently lying 2nd on the Ghana Premier League log after 24 round of games; having a game in hand and are in pole position to win their maiden GPL title.
But the club has been chastised by the media as they have sold some of their integral members abroad including goalkeeper Razak Abalorah.
But the Operations manager who indicated that they will continue to sell because the Ghana Premier League is not money endowed added;
“We are a production club so we train players with the aim to sell so it not surprising that we have sold our key players despite chasing the league title”.
“Clubs are suffering in this country to pay players and we struggle to pay our players too, so even me if I was to be a footballer, I would leave”, he added.
“What we prime most is the money and when it comes good, we will sell. It is not only footballers but even doctors move”, he lamented.
The Operations Manager was also quick to add that people should not be surprised at their player sales as the league is not rich in terms of money.
He continued; “We sold our goalkeeper [Razark Abalora] to Tanzania and some people are shocked but let me disclose to you that clubs in Tanzania are paying far far better than what we do in Ghana”.
“If Tanzania clubs are paying in the range of $1000 or $2,000 to $3000 and this will help the player improve his life, why not allow him to leave?”, he indicated.
“We don’t care about the destination or name Tanzania. “We only care about what they will earn at those clubs”, George OFosu Hene said.
Daniel Lomotey and Majeed Ashimeru are also on the list of players set to leave the Sogakope based side.
