Edubiase United owner Yakubu quits football

Abdul Salam Yakubu, Edubiase United owner and president, says he has quit football administration due to lack of funds to run the club and bad officiating from referees.

The Obuasi-based club recorded their eight defeat of the campaign on Thursday, when Dreams FC pipped them 1-0 at the Len Clay Stadium.

“I don’t have enough funds to continue financing my club in the ongoing Ghana Premier League. I think it’s right for me to call it a quit,” Yakubu told Happy FM.

“There are no sponsorships or whatsoever to assist clubs and my father who was helping me in diverse ways just died few days ago. I will not let the club travel to Tarkwa to play Medeama SC in the last game of first round. I can’t continue to throw money away like that especially with how bad officiating has been.

“Referees have their own plans even before they enter the field of play for the league matches. There will be 15 clubs competing in the league henceforth and I mean it,” he added.

Edubiase are sitting at the bottom of the log with 12 points.
