With desperation written all over his face ahead of their matchday 14 encounter with Asante Kotoko at the Karl Reindorf Park [Dansoman] on Wednesday, May 30, Director of Liberty Professionals Mr. George Afriyie was hugely entertained by two former players of the scientific soccer lads; Asamoah Gyan and Samuel Sarfo.
The former Vice President of the Ghana Football Association [GFA] who was relieved of his duties after an Executive Committee meeting held in Accra on Tuesday, April 24 looked fidgety prior to kick off knowing the implications that awaits Liberty Professionals should they lose the match to the Porcupine Warriors.
But the Director’s uneasiness dropped off as the match wears on especially when his side took the lead through Edwin Tuffour’s spot kick in the 14th minute.
The owner and bankroller of Division One League campaigners – Okyeman Planners FC was full of smiles halfway through the game when he was joined by former Liberty Professionals duo – Asamoah Gyan and Samuel Sarfo as they were caught on camera having fun.
Before joining Udinese in 2003, Black Stars captain – Asamoah Gyan was a towering figure in the attacking set up of Liberty Professionals.
Samuel Sarfo was also the captain of Liberty Professionals until February 2018 when he left the Ghana Premier League side to join Iranian club Saipa for an undisclosed fee.
His unquestionable performance last season earned him a call up into the national senior soccer team as well as playing a major role in Ghana’s success at the last WAFU tournament held at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium where the Black Star B team emerged as the ultimate champions.
The match which could best be described as ‘A Tale of Two Halves’ ended 1-1.
