Premier League side King Faisal have swiftly denied the story carried by various media outlets that suggest the President of the club Alhaji Grusah has tagged Samuel Osei Kuffour and some of his former players as ungrateful.
According to the club’s communication department, the story is palpably spurious and entirely antithetical to the religious, moral and professional belief of the President.
In a statement released on the club page, the story is a calculated attempted to cause embarrassment and public ridicule to the club owner.
The statement read,
We have noted with dismay a news carried by Asempafmonline.com and other news portals, that suggests that Alhaji Grusah as the President of King Faisal FC, tagged Samuel Osei Kuffour and Sulley Muntari as ‘ungrateful.’
The Communication Department of the team would like to emphatically state that the story is palpably spurious, farcical and entirely antithetical to our President’s religious, moral and professional beliefs.
The impression is calculated to cause embarrassment and public ridicule. The President only eulogised the late Opoku Afriyie, whom he had a very close relationship with but never downplayed the efforts and contribution of the former players of the club.
We urge the public to disregard this story, borne out of mischief and lies, intended to cause disaffection.
Alhaji Grusah remains and will forever remain indebted to Samuel Osei Kuffour and the other former players of the club for championing the cause of the club.
