Africa Ghana: Why Tony Yeboah abandoned his club?

In an interview last week, the former Ghanaian international Tony Yeboah explained the reasons behind the abandonment of his club in 2014.

“After my career, I wanted to give back to the society with Yegoala FC and also maybe show a new Yeboah,” said the former Leeds player at TV3.

“But I realized that in Ghana, you had to pay the referees or you don’t win. The officials were aware of the situation. I decided not to ruin my reputation and I sold the club,” added Yeboah.

Yegoala was sold in 2014, 5 years after its creation. “I pay players, coaches and had I also to pay referees? No, I couldn’t,” concluded the former Black Star striker.
