Stranded Ghanaian players in Ethiopia confirm being contacted by GFA

    The Ghanaian players stranded in Ethiopia have confirmed that they have been contacted by the Ghana Football Association (GFA) after their video went viral. 

    On Tuesday, a video uploaded by a group of Ghanaian players in Ethiopia had the likes of ex-Black Stars defender Lee Addy and goalkeeper Muntari Tagoe pleading to the government to have them evacuated back home to join their families.

    According to them, the inactivity of football in Ethiopia has presented them with hardships as they risked facing additional financial challenges if they do not receive help.

    Subsequently, Ghana FA president, Kurt Okraku after seeing the video contacted the Minister for Youth and Sports, Hon. Isaac Asiamah to discuss how to bring the stranded players back home.

    In an interview with Otec FM, defender Lee Addy who is amongst the stranded players has confirmed that they have indeed been contacted by the GFA as well as Ghana’s Ambassador to Ethiopia, Her Excellency Mrs. Amma A. Twum-Amoah.

    “We have received a call from the GFA after our video. We’ve delivered our details and the ambassador’s number to them”, Lee Addy said.

    He added, “The ambassador also called and explain things to us and we’ve responded to her. We are waiting for what will happen next”.
