Former Ghanaian international and Bayern Munich legend Samuel Kuffour, has taken over Kumasi based King Faisal FC after the club’s return to Ghana’s top flight.

The founder of the club Alhaji Karim Grunsah had announced last week that, due to financial constraints he was looking for a new owner for the club.

The club’s Ghanaian Premiership status was affirmed at the 2019 Ghana FA Extraordinary Congress in Accra.

Kuffour who is a former player of King Faisal FC is hoping to establish the club amongst the country’s elite, by acquiring the best players and providing state of the art infrastructure and management.

Samuel Osei Kuffour left King Faisal FC in 1991, to join Italian outfit Torino at the age of 15. He left Torino two years later to join Bayern Munich, where he spent 11 years of his glorious club football career and notably won the UEFA Champions League in 2001.

He also played for AS Roma and Ajax of Amsterdam, Livorno, Nuremberg and Asante Kotoko.

43-year-old Sammy Kuffour played in the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany with the Black Stars and featured for them in four African Cup of Nations in his 54 caps with three goals to his name.

He is currently working as a football pundit for South African based sports broadcasters, SuperSports.
