We can’t compete with Hearts and Kotoko – Chelsea

The General Manager of Berekum Chelsea, Ralf Gyambra has admitted his side can no longer compete with the likes of Accra Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko when it comes to the transfer market.
Chelsea have struggled financially since the club’s owner and bankroller, Emmanuel Kyeremeh relocated to Canada to seek medical attention.
The Berekum side which won the Ghana premier league title and featured prominently in the CAF Champions League three years ago can no longer sign big players like they did few years ago.
It would be recalled that Chelsea was recently the desired destination of some of the country’s top football stars based in Ghana.
Three years ago Berekum Chelsea paraded a squad which had the likes of Emmanuel Clottey, Jordan Opoku, Ernest Sowah, Eric Bekoe and Baba Armando.
The absence of Emmanuel Kyeremeh has hit the club hard, and the new General Manager admits a new approach must be adopted if Chelsea is to remain relevant in Ghana football.
Speaking to the press of the GFA congress in Prampram earlier this week, Mr Gyambra said new “We can’t compete with Hearts and Kotoko for players now. We have to restructure in order to pay or debts and remain relevant. We are doing that and I can assure you that we will have a good season come the start of the league”.
