Former Kumasi Asante Kotoko central defender, Ahmed Adams has cleared the air on the reasons why he left the club to Berekum Chelsea.
According to the bulky defender, he only asked management to increase his salary but it was rejected when his contract was left with just three months.
In his interview with Don Summer on Angel FM’s floodlight show, Ahmed said a management member told him he was not Messi to receive increment in his salary.
“My departure from Asante Kotoko was bizarre. I asked management to increase my salary from GH1,000.00 which they rejected.
I regretted when Lawyer Boafo told me, I am not Lionel Messi to attract any additional amount, when my contract had left with three months.” he said
In his reaction to lawyer Boafo’s comment, he said they should go and bring Messi to come and play.
“Yes, I am not Messi, Go and bring the Messi you respect to come and play”, he replied.
He further added that it was not Dr. Kwame Kyei who told him to go and play for FC Barcelona because he had not met him.
“Doctor Kwame Kyei never told me I can go and play for Barcelona because I had not met him in person,” he stressed when Summer pushed him on numerous times.
Ahmed Adams again explained that, it took the effort of the former CEO of the club, Mr. Samuel Opoku Nti to get him released from Kotoko and Nana Oduro Sarfo assisted for his move to Chelsea even though he was training with Ashanti Gold FC.
“Getting release from Kotoko had to take the effort of the former CEO, Mr. Samuel Opoku Nti.
Mr. Oduro Sarfo finally worked for my release to Berekum Chelsea, my current club, he said”.
“I trained with Ashgold Fc with the intention of playing for them but I had to settle with Berekum Chelsea when Nana Kwame Nketsia called me.
It would be a great moment to play alongside my brother Kassim Nuhu Adams in the black stars. It is the only national team I have not tasted”, he told Don Summer on the show.
He therefore pleaded with Kotoko fans who felt worried over his departure to forgive him since he still loves the club
“God’s time is the best for me as a player.
I plead with every Kotoko supporter who felt worried on my departure from the club to forgive me and forget as I still love the great club of the century.” Ahmed Adams
