LIBERTY Professionals may be experiencing some ups-and-downs in terms of performance, but the club is not in crisis.
These are the words of Assistant Coach, Felix Aboagye, who told the Times Sports yesterday, that all was fine with the ‘Scientific Soccer’ lads.
A section of the media had reported last week of player mutiny and indiscipline in the club, resulting in players boycotting training prior to their Elite Cup game against Accra Great Olympics last Sunday – a game which the Dansoman-based side lost 0-2 at the Carl Reindorf Park in Dansoman.
According to the report, Liberty thrashed about to raaisae a team for the game because the players had refused to play as a result outstanding salaries owed them.
However, the soft-spoken assistant trainer rejected that claim.
“We never struggled to put up a team. Indeed, our defeat to Olympics was not as a result of the unavailability of players.
“Again, like any other club in the premiership, sometimes players are owed for about a month or two and that does not suggest a crisis situation as being speculated.
“We are united, ever-committed and focused,” added Aboagye, who was a prolific striker for the Black Stars in his heyday.
He disclosed that outstanding salaries owed the players were fully paid last Friday “and there is no cause for alarm.”
At present, Liberty are placed seventh on the 16-club First Capital Plus Premier League (FCPPL) log.
