Liberty Professionals Director George Afriyie has dared agent Kofi Bawuah to go to court over Latif Blessing.
The Director of Liberty Professionals, George Afriyie, has called Kofi Bawuah’s bluff on his threat to sue the Dansoman-based club and their player Latif Blessing.
International Football Scout Kofi Bawuah has been left fuming after Liberty Professionals attacker Latif Blessing turned down a move to Tunisian side CS Sfaxien last month. Barwuah argues that he spent a lot of money to broker the deal; hence Liberty must refund the money he spent or face a lawsuit.
The scout also holds the view that the Dansoman-based club conspired with Blessing to scupper the move and is therefore threatening to sue both parties, after reports emerged that the Ghana Premier League MVP is on the verge of signing for a South African club.
George Afriyie claims Bawuah has no case and has questioned his knowledge about transfer regulations.
Afriyie told Happy Fm: “You requested that you have an offer for Latif Blessing, and that we should give you a mandate to speak to the player and we did. So it was left for you to convince the player to travel. So if at the end of the day you could not convince the player to make the move, do you blame us? Do you want us to force the player to travel? He [Barwuah] does not understand transfer regulations. We can’t force a player to travel against his will.”
He added that Liberty Professionals are ready to battle Bawuah in court.
“If he is going to court he should go and stop the threats. When he goes to court we shall meet him there. The empty threats are enough.”
Latif Blessing scored 17 goals to emerge top scorer last season and was subsequently crowned best player by the Premier League Board.
The 21-year old has been the subject of many bids from both local and foreign clubs, but recently hinted that he was heading for South Africa’ PSL.
