President of Bechem United FC Mr. Kingsley Owusu Achaw has threatened that the club is ready to pull out of the 2017/2018 MTN FA Cup competition unless the ‘right’ thing is done citing imperfections in the Round of 64 draw.
The draw for the Round of 64 was held live at the conference room of the Ghana Football Association [GFA] on Tuesday, May 15, 2018 but Bechem United have questioned why they should be paired against AshantiGold SC.
The President of Bechem United claims that the FA Cup Committee did not ballot, but rather decided on the fixtures backed by malicious intentions:
“The Fa Cup committee didn’t ballot, they sat and decided who plays who,” he said.
Mr. Achaw further questioned why they should be paired against another Premier League side at the phase of the competition.
“They [FA Cup Committee] should explain to us how they came by such a draw,” he quizzed.
“We [Bechem United] are the only premier league club going away to play another premier league club – AshantiGold SC.
“If they are talking about proximity, AshantiGold and Bechem United should not be paired against each other.
“We should have been paired against a Division one club,” he said.
