‘You Kicked Him Out of Black Stars, Stop Pretending You Loved Him’ – John Paintsil Fumes At GFA
As Ghana mourns the loss of winger Christian Atsu, former Black Stars defender John Paintsil has blasted the Ghana Football Association (GFA).
The Ghana FA, along with many others who were connected to the footballer, released a statement to express their condolences after the player’s body was found beneath the rubble of the Turkey earthquake on Saturday.
According to him, the Ghana FA shunned the player while he was without a club but is now acting as if it were a different story.
“You snubbed him and kicked him out of your Black Stars at age 31. Atsu has been struggling to get a permanent stay in a club since the snub.
“We all know the Value & Respect your club gives you when you play for your Nation.
“Don’t pretend you loved him because you don’t at all,” John Paintsil told Original FM in an interview monitored by Pak MediaGh.com
Christian Atsu’s remains have already traveled from Turkey to Ghana. The required preparations will be made for his funeral by his family.
