President and bankroller of Berekum Arsenal, Alhaji Yakubu Moro has called on the Ghana Football Association president, Kurt Okraku to respect clubs over the $500,000 FIFA stimulus package.

The world football governing body as part of their plans to help combat the Coronavirus pandemic is set to release a sum of $500,000 to all federations.

However, the FA through its Communications Director, Henry Asante Twum revealed that the money is meant for the FA and not the clubs.

But according to the Yakubu Moro, clubs are in crisis and the FA must show respect in distributing the money as soon as possible.

“What he (Henry Asante Twum) said doesn’t make sense if you inform us (club owners) that you are going to solicit funds from government for us amid Covid-19 downturn and thankfully FIFA has given you money why don't you give it to us?” Yakubu told Atinka FM.

“They did the same when they collected $1m of GLO debt without given club owners a penny.

“There wouldn't be GFA if there is no club, so am urging my colleague club owners to rise for us to fight for our rights, they shouldn't keep quiet over this issue like they did when the GLO money came.

“The GFA should think twice and apportion some of the funds to us, the suffering is unbearable to us.

"Show respect to us, you cant be using our money to buy yourself cars.

Kurt Okraku administration doesn't have any respect for football clubs," he ended.

Football activities is currently on hold due to the outbreak of the virus.
