Founder and owner of Bechem United, Kingsley Owusu Achiau has disclosed that they are facing some difficulties in their Africa campaign due to President John Mahama’s failure to construct an astro-turf pitch for them.
Bechem United were crowned champions of the 2015/16 MTN FA Cup after beating Okwawu United at the Cape Coast Stadium by 2:1.
President Mahama gave Bechem United GHC50, 000 and promised them he will construct an astro-turf pitch for them ahead of their CAF Confederations Cup camping in the 2016/17 season.
In less than two months for the campaign to start, the pitch has not been constructed and Agama believes the President failure to deliver on his promise has putting their Africa campaign in a difficult situation.
“We were looking to forward to the promise the president told us but as it stands we have not heard anything from him but we have been able to do some of the work around the pitch.” Agama told Asempa FM.
“We were expecting to have the pitch being constructed on time but it has not being done so we will bring a specialist from Kumasi to do that work but I must confirm that it is a big problem for us.
“We have shifts our attention from the astro-turf pitch the president promised us to an ordinary pitch we will construct. Officials from CAF came and inspect the place but what is left now is the pitch and because the president couldn’t stick to his promise, we will only construct an ordinary pitch for the Africa campaign.
“We have given CAF our jerseys that we will use but for our players we couldn’t provide them. We couldn’t do any preseason for the upcoming season because of the problems going on at the FA and it is my prayer that it will end because it really distract the attention and it doesn’t help we the club owners to plan well and I wish it will be a thing of the past.” Agama added.
