In an interview with Ghana Sports Journalist, Isaac Ganyo Tamakloe the Guinean based club As Kaloum defender, Amos Frimpong narrated how he felt after watching the video.

“After watching their video I felt so sad because it isn’t easy for most footballers outside the home this time. Some teams have started asking players to look for their own apartment because most of them under normal times the season would have been ended by this time.

“For the contract issue, I am yet to meet the Club’s president over it. I haven’t and I will never regret playing for the Current team As Kaloum. Kotoko is a big team every player will love playing for but now I have a contract with my team so my concentration is on my current team.” He said
