CEO of Soccer Stars Sport Limited and FIFA intermediary Mr Idowu Ismail Oluwabiyi has disclosed that Yussif Chibsah was dishonest in Kwame Bonsu’s move to Esperance.
It will be recalled that agent for Kwame Bonsu, Yussif Alhassan Chibsah recently cleared the air on his client’s move to Esperance in a bide to clarify the details of the deal.
However, in a sting to the tale of Chibsah, Mr Idowu, who initiated Kwame Bonsu’s move to Esperance claims he was left in the dark by Yussif Chibsah – the representative of the player.
Apparently, Mr Idowu claimed he was shocked to the bone marrow when he discovered Yussif Chibsah was entitled to 20 per cent of the deal (which was worth $150,000) and believes the law of karma was served with neither Yussif Chibsah nor Asante Kotoko benefiting financially from the deal.
“Because he [Yussif Chibsah] never told me nor Slim [my partner in Tunisia]. I was surprised when I heard from the video he had an agreement with Kotoko of 20 per cent of the deal, which he never told me nor explained anything to Slim.
I was surprised at his behavior” he told Kumasi-based Ashh FM.
When asked whether Chibsah was cheating Asante Kotoko, he explained:
“Only God will judge because everyone has conscience. I don’t know about their relationship [Chibsah and Kotoko]. But in life you have to be sincere with anything you are doing.
Now he is playing smart, did he get anything from the deal? He quizzed.
“Honesty and sincerity is what matters the most in life [transaction]. Don’t outsmart anybody in any deal. Yussif got nothing in the deal because he tried to outsmart us but everything failed. He tried to outsmart both my partner and I.
He argued Yussif Chibsah should have remained in touch with him throughout the deal.
“He should have been in constant communication with us because we were the once who started the deal” Mr Idowu concluded.
Meanwhile, reports circulating in the media suggests Asante Kotoko and Esperance have reached a consensus to use Kwame Bonsu’s $150,000 transfer fee to offset Emmanuel Clottey’s outstanding cost of $180,000 with the remainder paid when the Tunisians transfer the midfielder to a different club.
Thus, the Porcupine Warriors will not benefit financially from the deal until Clottey’s debt is cleared.
