Head coach of Ebusua Dwarfs Prof Joseph Kwame Mintah couldnt travel with the club for the crucial CAF confederations Cup 2nd Leg with Angolan side Petro Atletico because the club couldnt purchase a flight ticketfor him, Ghanasportsonline.com can exclusively reveal.
The Cape-Coast based side had won the first leg at the Robert Mensah stadium by 2-0 but suffered a humiliating 4-0 defeat in the reverse tie in Luanda as the team played without their head coach on the bench.
Mintah, an associate Professor of the University of Cape Coast who also doubles as the psychologist for the Ghana national team was on duty with the Black Stars in Montenegro for the friendly, and had informed management of Dwarfs to make arrangements so he flies directly to meet the team in Angola but was told there was no money to purchase him a flight ticket from there.
Prof Mintah told Angel Fm “I couldn’t travel with the team because there was no money to make the travel arrangements for me to fly straight from Montenegro to meet the team in Luanda”.
“I had told to make that arrangemenst so that immediately after the Stars game, I would prepare and fly to meet the team so we play the Angolans but I waited and was later told that there was no money to buy me a tickets so they went and played the game like that”.
