Liberty Professionals Up To Challenge

Listen to article

Liberty Professionals, which exports more players than any other club in Ghana, are rearing to mount a formidable challenge for this year's One Touch Premier League.

The Dansoman-based team, which has historically groomed world-class players only to lose them during the season, was able to make it to the fifth spot in last year's Premier League, after Panasonic injected 800 million cedis lifeblood into the team's kitty.

The package, which was used to pay salaries and bonuses of players, looks set to grease their feet on the pitch.

The club's corporate sponsors, Panasonic, who provided the club with the initial package is impressed with the leverage that the team has managed to give its products, and plans to increase its investment in brand building by 10 per cent.

At a press briefing to launch the package, Marketing Manager of Kumesh Ghana limited, sole agent of Panasonic, Mr Ravagan said the company is committed to the development of the most professionally run club in the country and that they will always be up for a deal if the scientific soccer lads live up to expectation.

Motivated by the launch was coach of the club, Sellas Tetteh, who was quick to mention that this will urge his side on to win the league, despite the stiff opposition.

Meanwhile, Technical Director of the club, Sir Cecil Jones Attuquayefio told CITI SPORTS that the transfers of players in the club during the league period will cease, once the league is in session for a good run in their premiership title ambition.

The team on Wednesday handed division one campaigners, Midjlland, a 3-1 defeat at the Legon Abedi Pele Park as part of their preparations for the league.
