I never consulted Juju men - Ex. Ghana Star Abdul Razak denies claims by Alhaji Grunsah

Veteran Ghanaian coach Abdul Razak has finally responded to the claims made by controversial football administrator, Alhaji Karim Grunsah that he was more of a ‘spiritualist’ than a manager while coaching Asante Kotoko.

According to the former national team star, popularly known as Golden Boy, the claims of him consulting juju men are untrue and must be treated with contempt.

The King Faisal owner accused the former Asante Kotoko coach of consulting spiritualists. Alhaji Karim Grunsah claimed he met Razak on several occasions consulting with spiritualists.

“Alhaji is like a father. There are things that he says you don’t want to retaliate or reply to him in a harsh way. Maybe he will feel bad but the way he talked wasn’t right,” Mr. Razak told Delali Atiase on Kick-Off Sports on Luv FM.

Grunsah made the allegation after Razak had led Kotoko to beat King Faisal back-to-back in the 2003/04 Premier League.

Kotoko beat King Faisal 1-0 through Michael Osei’s 7th-minute free-kick in their last meeting which served as a decider for the League for Kotoko.

That victory ensured that the Porcupine Warriors became champions for the first time in 10-years with two matches to spare.

According to Razak, the pain associated with Alhaji Grusah’s team losing to his team twice in a single campaign may have informed the unfounded accusations.

“It may be out of anger when his team was beaten…he said this and people were taking him on so it doesn’t stop me from doing my own thing,” he said.
