“Stay off…Would you push me to play for Ghana if I’m your son?” Southampton defender Salisu quizzes Alhaji Grusah


The Saints’ centre-back has advised the veteran football administrator not to meddle in his private decision following attempts to lure him play for Ghana in international stage

Southampton defender Mohammed Salisu has advised King Faisal owner Alhaji Karim Grusah to stay off his personal issue after he attempted to lure him to play Ghana.

The 22-year-old has constantly rejected the chance to play for Ghana and Grusah opted to intervene but he was advised to stay away since he wouldn’t have advised his son to change his mind after what Salisu went through in the past.

According to reports, Salisu was asked to pay a bribe before he could be part of the Ghana U-17 national team and has since vowed not to play for the country again.

“The Black Stars Chairman tasked me to speak to Salisu because he’s from Kumasi,” Grusah told Atinka FM.

“I called his dad and he linked me to him. Salisu flatly told me to stay away from his matter. He questioned me that if he was my son, would I advise him to play for Ghana?

“I’m not the only person who has spoken to him. I know CK Akunnor went to him, he said he won’t play. 

“Even the GFA President said he found where his mother stays and went to her. I don’t know what happened but Salisu is not ready to play.

“He was angry when I called him. He insisted several times that I should stay out of the matter because he doesn’t want to have any problem with me.

“I’m not going to involve myself in his matter again. I don’t know the problem he has with the GFA but I will not call him again.”
