King Faisal blame GFA boss for defeat

King Faisal owner Alhaji Abdul Karim Grunzah is pointing the finger of blame at Kwesi Nyantakyi for his club's humiliating defeat at the hands of Liberty Professionals.

The Kumasi-based club were thrashed 4-0 in the opening GT Premier League game in Dansoman on Sunday.

Despite the disjointed play of his club, the enigmatic Grunsah found it prudent to blame president of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) for the loss.

Nyantakyi, who is also the bankroller of newly-promoted Wa All Stars, recruited coach Nuru Ahmed from King Faisal in the pre-season.

Grunsah says the departure of Ahmed to the Wa-based club muddled King Faisal's preparation for the new season.

"I put the blame of our defeat at the doorsteps of the GFA chairman because he took our trusted coach from us," Grunsah said.

"We looked after coach Ahmed very well but you know when Nyantakyi comes calling you can?t turn him down - he is powerful.

"Since the coach left our preparation went out of gear and we had to struggle to make things work.

"We are a small club and Nyantakyi should know that such actions can only undermine our efforts.

"He can't do such a thing to Hearts or Kotoko because they will take him on."

The defeat left King Faisal at the bottom of the 16-team league.
