Medeama Soccer Club director Moses Armah has countered claims he sold his house to fund the team's trip to Lubumbashi to honor their confederations cup match.
The experienced club administrator has described as "malicious" the report of putting up his plush building in takoradi for sale, in the wake of their trip.
Medeama has not denied a downward spiral financially, but Moses Armah is enraged by reports suggesting that he sold the property.
“It’s totally ridiculous, absurd and reckless for anyone to make that claim without cross-checking the fact,”
“I have not sold my house neither do I intend to do so.“We have Goldfields Ghana Limited which has provided tremendous financial support to the club.“They have been with us all the way and will continue to offer a hand of support to us.
He told Medeama fm in an interview.
“There are financial difficulties everywhere, but to sit at the comfort of your home and manufacture such a lie is unfortunate.
He was incensed by the reportage and accused the media of fabricating such stories.
"I’m struggling to understand the motive behind this reportage but that’s the problem with some of our journalists in Ghana. They are only interested in manufacturing stories to occupy space. It’s just unfortunate". He opined.
The two-time Ghanaian FA Cup holders travel to face five-time African champions TP Mazembe in their opening group A clash in Lubumbashi on Sunday.
