President and owner of King Faisal Alhaji Karim Grusah says that his club is in the shop window as he is looking for buyers for the club he single handedly founded.
According to the out spoken Grunsah he is considering relocating the club from Kumasi where he was born and bred as the club has not had the support of the locals since its inception.
He lamented the low gate proceeds the club normally get on match days suggesting that they sometimes get as little as GH 6 on match days.
“We are considering relocating the club from Kumasi. We can’t continuously play in Kumasi whiles we gross GHC6 from our games.”
“I was born and bred in Kumasi but the people of Kumasi have neglected King Faisal even in our prime days.”
King Faisal was on Friday re-admitted into the Ghana premier league 2019/2020 season by the congress after failed legal battles for years but in all this triumph Grunzah thinks its about time to let go of his football club.
He however wants any potential buyer or investor to maintain the name King Faisal just as an honour to him.
“I’m ready to release King Faisal outright to any investor but my only plea to any potential buyer will be that he shouldn’t rename the club just in honouring me.”
“I’m appealing to everyone who’s interested I want to be part of the club as far as I’m alive.” he stressed.
