Chief Executive Officer of Ghana Premier League outfit Techiman Eleven Wonders, Albert Yahaya Commey has iterated red-hot Hearts of Oak midfielder is eligible to play against them this afternoon.
Salifu, affectionately called Di Maria swapped Eleven Wonders for capital-based heavyweights Hearts of Oak ahead of the start of the second round of the Ghanaian top-flight and has been nothing but brilliant in the Rainbow colours.
The nineteen-time winners of the Ghana Premier League, who have clinched three wins in a row are gunning for a fourth straight victory when they cross swords with relegation-threatened Eleven Wonders at the Ohene Ameyaw park on Friday afternoon.
Speaking ahead of the game, Albert Commey a former official of Hearts of Oak poured cold water on rumours making waves on the local scene about the eligibility of Salifu Ibrahim.
“We initially added it in the contract but the club owner of Hearts of Oak, Togbe Afede XIV demanded that portion of the contract removed. He is eligible to play against us if only his coach wishes” Albert Commey told Kumasi based OTEC FM.
A win for the Phobians will see them ascend to the summit of the league log at least temporarily should Asante Kotoko edge in-form West Football Academy (WAFA) – who have racked two wins in their last two away games.
