Assifuah Denies Sion F. C .Move

Assifuah2Ghana Under-20 s tar Ebenezer GAssifuah has rubbished claims that he has signed a four-year deal with Swiss side Sion FC.

The 2013 U20 World Cup top goal scorer is still in Ghana, contrary to media reports that he is in Switzerland to complete the deal.

S p e a k i n g   i n   a n interview with Accra- based Citi FM, the Liberty Professionals striker said: “All these rumours about me going anywhere is not true.” He added: “I am still a p l a y e r   o f   L i b e r t y Professionals and as you can see I am still in Accra.

“I only went to Kumasi and  Takoradi  to  visit  my a s s o c i a t i o n   f o r   f i x i n g Ghana’s   deciding   2014 World Cup qualifier against Zambia on a Friday,reports ghanaweb.com.

The Black Stars will only have to avoid defeat against the Chipoloplo in Kumasi, on September 6, to progress to the final stage of the qualifiers for next year’s World Cup in Brazil.

This crucial game has, however, been brought forward to a Friday instead of the normal Sundays due to an arranged international friendly against Japan four days later.

Many football fans are however, unhappy with the decision to shift the match forward only for a ‘mere’ friendly with a World Cup slot at stake. Critics fear this change will not give the Black Stars enough time to prepare for the crucial game as many of the Black Stars players are foreign-based and would take time to report to camp due to their remoteness.
