Team Manager of the national U-17 team of Ghana , Mr. Samuel Abrabri, has responded to wild allegations leveled against them by some Ghanaian journalists that the technical team of the Black Starlets take ” bribes ” before making call ups into the team.
Many journos are asking questions about how Rudolf Gblagojie earned a call up into the U-17 team recently ahead of the team’s towards the U-17 world cup which will come off in India on the 5th October 2017.
Mamobi FC was credited with the ownership of the player and this brought up alot of doubts around his call up but checks revealed that he has not featured for the said team in any match before but rather schools in the UK.
“I am really shocked at this news in the media,” he told Sportsnetghana.com. “Was coach Paa Kwasi not living his life before earning the job as the Head coach for the team? I just wander why people will just want to destroy a hard won reputation of people who should have been hailed rather, at a point people were even raising allegations that Steven Appiah was even involved in this for an exchange of fuel, how possible?,” he quizzed.
“Will Steven Appiah Cheapened himself to this level? I’m just pleading with the media to that even though we don’t exist without you guys, please come to us when you hear allegations or issues around us to just find out the real facts before making the story public” He said.
He further advised journalists to put before them the fear of God in reporting such issue which eventually dents the image of respected men in the society,
“You have to look at God before saying such things on air, just consider your religious background first” Mr Abrabi added.
He further explained how the player gained his call up:
“Rudolf schools in UK and came down to play a football match at the Lizzy sports complex and coach Paa Kwasi saw him and admired his height and confidence on the ball, he said he will polish him well to become a fine player and the player is also good per my view,”he concluded.
The player is currently in camp preparing with his colleagues for the world cup.
