Rwandan Premier League giants Rayon Sports of Kigali have fired 24-year-old Ghanaian forward Michael Sarpong following his public demand for wages.
The club says the former Dreams FC forward was sacked because of his inappropriate comments on a local radio about the club’s president Sadate Munyakazi on Monday 20th April 2020.
“Sadate does not fit the leadership of Rayon Sports”:few words that have now had a huge impact on the Ghanaian’s career.
The forward joined the club in 2018 from Dream FC and was on contract till the summer of 2020.
Sarpong was amongst players who earlier threatened the club revealing that they were owed four months wages.
Sources at the club say the situation had since been resolved as players have agreed a suspension of salaries after making payments for the month of March.
The club has agreed to continue offering emergency relief revenue to the players but terminated their relationship with their hit man who scored 16 goals in their 9th league title success during the 2018-2019 season.
“He doesn’t deserve this great club. This great club deserves someone who is mature and able to speak well to his players. He doesn’t.I don’t believe the players want him in that position,” these are the words that have made Sarpong jobless.
The club president in an outing with the BBC made some staggering revelations on the issue.
“Sarpong left the club in January for tryouts with Chinese Super League club Changchung Yatai FC, but he was unsuccessful. He left the club for another tryouts in Norway in February without informing Rayon Sports.
“We only learned after the Norwegian club contacted us requesting to have Sarpong on loan but we refused because he had not involved us” he said.
“When he returned from Norway, the club agreed with him he was not going to receive February salary because he was away without our permission, and he accepted”: Sadat Munyakazi explained.
“We had the chance of selling him to an interested club but no amount of money is worth the image of our club which he has tarnished.” He added
The current Champions of the Rwanda premier league are six off APR who lead after 24 rounds of matches in the 16 clubs championship.
There hasn’t been any football in the country since the league was halted over a month ago owing to the dreaded Covid-19 infection.
Sarpong will have to wait until the country’s borders are opened for him to leave for a new page elsewhere if he decides to leave the country.
