Solomon Odwo opens up to the possibility of Kofi Owusu leaving Berekum Chelsea

first_imgBerekum Chelsea coach Solomon Odwo says striker Kofi Owusu is open to any move away from the club after his impressive display for the Berekum based side in last season’s league.Owusu won last season’s top scorer award after scoring 19 times for Chelsea, a feat which has attracted much interest from both local and international clubs.Odwo notes that they are willing to let go the player only if a good deal is reached for the club. “He is open to any move, the thing with us is that we don’t keep the players who are willing to move out,” he told Joy Sports.”For Kofi Owusu, a lot of teams are after him and we hope that any team that comes with a good offer for the young man, we will allow him to leave.”Chelsea have lost three key players to Asante Kotoko in the transfer market with RIchard Osei Agyemang, Samuel Kyere, Bennet Ofori joining the Porcupines.Odwo is not disturbed with this and insists they will beef up before the season gets underway. “Last season when I joined Chelsea almost eleven regular players had left but we recruited new players and you see what happened. We will get good players and I know we will do better than what we did last season when the league gets underway.”Odwo led Chelsea to a respectable fourth place in the 2014/2015 FCPPL season.–Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @Joy997FM.

Green light for car park sale eases pressure on cash-strapped Bolton Wanderers

first_img Green light for car park sale eases pressure on cash-strapped Bolton Wanderers 1 Championship side Bolton obtained a validation order in the High Court on Friday afternoon that paves the way for a key car park sale at the Macron Stadium.Wanderers’ accounts were frozen when HM Revenue and Customs served them with a winding-up petition over £2.2million of unpaid tax and their first trip to the High Court this week resulted in a five-week adjournment over that matter on Monday.However, at another hearing in the capital on Friday Bolton sought permission to purchase a section of land next to a car park that it is understood they plan to sell as part of a larger deal to the owners of the Middlebook Retail Park, which is adjacent to the ground.That validation order was granted and Bolton also confirmed plans are afoot to push through payment to staff after their salaries were not paid on time on Thursday.A club statement read: “Bolton Wanderers is pleased to confirm that today, Friday 22 January, the club was able to obtain a third validation order at the High Court to allow it to enter into a transaction that enables it to continue trading.“The validation order gives authority to the club to finalise a commercial arrangement with Middlebrook Business Park Ltd and the club will provide a further update on this transaction on Monday.“In the meantime the club can confirm that instructions have been issued to expedite payment of all delayed staff January wages.”Earlier in the day manager Neil Lennon had revealed he and his coaching team had provided financial support themselves for some of the staff most affected by the missed pay packets.“I’ve got staff – part of my football staff and backroom staff – that are struggling to make ends meet at the minute,” Lennon revealed.“That’s not a great scenario. Some of us have had a whip round for a few of them just to keep them on board.“Hopefully when the car park sale goes through we can get a takeover done eventually and things can move on from here.”Lennon added of the staff: “They’ve been here quite a while and they absolutely love the club. If anyone deserves to be paid it’s probably these people for what they give to the club.”last_img read more
