Yakubu Mohammed terminates Raja Casablanca contract over racism

Former AshGold striker Yakubu Mohammed has terminated his contract with Moroccan side Raja Casablanca over what he describes as racism, can exclusively reveal.

Yakubu, 25, who arrived in Ghana two weeks ago insists he terminated his contract because the North African side abused him racially.

But he says the Moroccan have been abusing him racially which informed his decision to quit.

“In football, you play where you are needed and respected,” he said.

“They are racists. That is why I left. They have all the facilities to develop the game but they don’t respect we the blacks.”

“They don’t treat us well and it appears our welfare is not a problem for them,” he added.

Former Kotoko and Medeama striker Nathaniel Asamoah, now with Aduana Stars was the first of three Ghanaian stars to terminate his contract with Raja.

Former Kotoko and Maritzburg defender Awal Mohammed also terminated his a few weeks ago with Yakubu’s being the latest.
