In an official statement, Ghanaian football club Liberty Professionals has denied rumours that the club has been sold to Railways Development Minister Peter Amewu.
A statement issued by the club's CEO Linda Ansong on Tuesday, June 20, and seen by ModernGhana News said, "the club has not been sold as has been reported in sections of the media. It is still in existence under the ownership of its remaining founder Mr. Felix Ansong."
The club also revealed that it has "rather divested its slot to compete in the Division One league. The club will still compete within the Ghana Football Association pyramid."
According to the statement, Liberty Professionals started as an academy and will "seek to re-establish its reputation as a world-class developer of Ghanaian football talent."
The club said it has "invested significant resources in the redevelopment of existing infrastructure like player accommodation, additional training pitches, talent recruitment and technical direction."
Linda Ansong added: "This direction will be under the guidance of noted talent trainer John Oppong Welbeck who has been at the post for the past two months. We urge our passionate fan base...to continue to support us."
The statement comes after rumours spread that Peter Amewu, Member of Parliament for Hohoe and Minister for Railway Development, had bought Liberty Professionals Football Club.
However, the club's official statement denies those rumours.
