He revealed that he rents a football pitch for GH¢400 for two hours.
"The feeding costs me a lot because the children have to drink and eat well. If you don't feed the players well, it will affect them. It can cause them to suffer frequent injuries.
"We buy a bag of rice for GH¢800. Every time I go, I buy about ten bags."
