The Communications Director for the National Sports Authority (NSA), Charles Amofah, has revealed that Ghana Premier League clubs Berekum Chelsea and Legon Cities are yet to report to the police the incident of robbery in their team buses as speculated.

After the Legon Cities FC and Berekum Chelsea premier league opening game at the Accra Sports Stadium, there were claims that their buses were robbed during the game.

Speaking on Rainbow Sports, Mr. Amofah said the National Sports Authority treated the report as a hoax because both teams have not reported the incident to the police.

Berekum Chelsea and Legon Cities were alleged to have been robbed during their game of their belongings such as laptops, phones, and cash.

But Mr. Amofah says the story should be treated as false as the teams in question are adamant about reporting the issue to the police.

“The police encouraged the two teams to report the case but as we speak, they have not reported.

‘And so, the NSA does not believe in the case. The briefing from the police disclosed that the buses were not bugled as reported.”

Meanwhile, Legon Cities officially announced that it had terminated its contract with Bosnian Coach, Goran Barjaktarevic after 11 months.

During his time Goran oversaw 17 matches; winning only 3, drawing 8, and losing 6.

‘Legon Cities announces that Manager Goran Barjaktarevic has left with the club with immediate effect.

‘The club would like to thank Goran for his services during his time at Legon Club FC and to wish him success in the future.

A new Manager will be announced in the coming days.’’ – the statement from the club read.
