Osei Kofi Demands Better Treatment Of Retired Footballers

A member of the victorious 1965 AFCON squad, Reverend Osei Kofi, has dished out some harsh words in what look like a warning to members of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), saying they should not show up at his funeral ceremony to read any tributes a part of the final rites when he passes on.

The Ghanaian legend spoke to Atinka FM in an interview where he bemoaned the promises made by ex-GFA officials and past governments to each member of the victorious 18-man 1965 AFCON squad which remained unfulfilled 50 years after he and his teammates defended the AFCON trophy in Tunisia.

The organizers have planned a fun game between the old Black Stars players and Asante Kotoko to be played on Friday and are being requested to pay GHC 15,000.
