The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) for Bechem FC, Nana KKwesi Dadzie has expressed the team’s displeasure over the location given them.
In an interview, he emphatically stated on Rainbow Radio that, the MTN FA Cup draw was not a good draw because the MTN FA Cup Committee assured us that they will be allow us to play our matches at the nearest location but unfortunately the MTN FA Cup Committee rather sent the team to Obuasi instead of Kumasi which is closer to Bechem.’’
‘’They assured us of the nearest place but we have been sent to Obuasi. This has been done because they do not respect the team.’’
He urged the committee to be credible in the way they manage the process.
‘’We will refuse to play if we realize there is lack of credibility in the system,’’ he warned.
