Dolphins insists Ghanaian players still in its ranks


Two of the Ghanaian players are still with Dolphins.

Former Nigeria Premier League Champions, Dolphins, has refuted media reports that it has lost the services of her Ghanaian players.

Last season, Dolphins had three Ghanaian born players- Owusu Addae, Seidu Abuu and James Amankwei- in her books, but a media report recently said the trio had left the club.

The Media Officer of Dolphins, China Acheru, however said on Sunday, that the report was not true.

“Now unless the writer of that story knows something we don’t, two out of the three players in question are still Dolphins players.

“First, at the end of the season and after appraisal by the coaches, James Amankwei was declared surplus to requirements and told he could leave but not so for the other two,” Acheru said.

The spokesperson said he spoke with the coach, Stanley Eguma who said, Owusu Addae and Seidu Abuu were still in his plans but were given an extended holiday in Ghana and will be join the club soon.

“It is possible that Amankwei has found a club in Bayelsa or Malasia because he does not fit into the plans of the club and he has been told exactly that but the story is certainly not the same for the other two- Addae and Abuu- who will both play for Dolphins next football season,” he said.

Seidu Abuu joined Dolphins last season while Owusu Addae has been with the team since 2008/09 football season.
