Former Black Stars defender Samuel Osei Kuffour believes that King Faisal's bankroller, Alhaji Grusah should take a step back and allow people with connections to manage the club.

Kuffour also revealed that Tanko and Chibsah regularly talk with him about King Faisal and hinted that they would be willing to manage the club if called upon by Alhaji Grusah.

When asked if Alhaji has reached out to him concerning the management of the club, he gave a negative answer.

“No [He hasn't reached out]. He knows what I d[id] for the club those days but since then he hasn’t approached. I, Tanko, and Chibsah have a conversation every day about King Faisal. We talk about things we can do to help but is Alhaji [Grusah] ready to do that?" he quizzed.

"We cannot go to Alhaji and say give us King Faisal. It is not possible. Support is different. If you are giving one cedi or two cedis, that is different. If you want me to get involved with the team, we need to sit down and talk properly,” he told Joy FM.

He added: “Now where is the league and where is King Faisal? Alhaji is 75 years I know. Will Alhaji sit down for people to run King Faisal for him? He will not. Alhaji will not. Alhaji should call people who have the knowledge and connection to run the team. Look at Ibrahim Tanko, look at Chibsah, look at me. There is a lot of people out there who can help but we cannot just go there and tell him. It doesn’t work like that.”

The 43-year-old left King Faisal for Torino in 1991.
