Afful takes dig at Stoichkov

Afful takes dig at Stoichkov

Posted: 31 July 2009 Time: 2:23 pm

Harrison Afful won't be joining Mamelodi Sundowns in South Africa after claiming he did not feel new coach Hristo Stoichkov wanted him.

Afful travelled to South Africa after the completion of the Ghana League season two weeks ago, but says he trained for two days and decided it was not going to be home after all.   "The coach was acting funny," he told KickOffGhana.com. "He did not say a single word to me and I got a feeling that even though the club's management wanted me, he wasn't interested. Given that he takes the decisions about who will play and who will no, I knew my career will suffer if I signed. I did not feel right about it.   "I trained for two days and then they asked that I stay on for a one week trial, but I didn’t feel it would be right for me because the coach just did not look interested."   Afful says he will extend his deal with Kumasi Asante Kotoko and feels he can advance his career in Ghana.   The 23-year old has been Ghana's first-choice left-back since the 2008 Nations Cup and has played in all but one of Ghana's nine World Cup qualifiers to date.

Mzukisi (Chickmagnet), then get Pie-rats or Chimps to sign him if he is that good.

As an organiser, i'm fully behind my team with Kurt Leintjies as a member.

Troot yesterday called the rumours about Kurt Leintjies as mischiveous in a radio inerview, can Kickoff please follow that one up..??

Kickoff, please contact Trott about Kurt, please guys.

From Wonder the Sundawana organiser...!!!

The proof of a pudding is in the tasting. Flops/Flour management had seen a really good player but the monkey who said Africans cannt play soccer has let him go. This boy is a better player than that Malian Downs are about to sign plus he's young. Ghana are coming to the WC so this boy would have worked even harder to keep his place in the team. Pity Chiefs have a full quota of Zimbos.

You are really a stupid creature. South Africans are Africans you moegoe, Malians are Africans, Mozambicans are Africans, etc. Take your pathetic ignorance elsewhere, you are really an embarrassment to your family, the team you support, your friends, neighbours, hell, even the cats and dogs which are unsurprisingly more intelligent than you are. What a moegoe!!

I seriously think this guy wasn't signed coz of his looks. He looks like that Ethiopian guy who played for Bucs and Supersports.

Kali,don't jump the bandwagon because you will be badly hurt.If you don't understand English,please don't make it our problem.If you can go back and read Mzoe's comment,then you will be able to identify the STUPID.To sum it up,this guy took the correct decision to go back home not because of the coach but the clubs standard is below par.

I think sun downs a having too many players of late. They better use what they have before they fall onto the same trap of last season.

AFFUL Sundowns can't accomodate everyone, broer,,try kuma other teams if you want to play in South Africa....was impressed about the coach's overall thinking about the Charity Cup tournament competition...Mike 'Head on the block' Mangena said Chiefs will take everything prior to the game against Pirates, then suggested/predicted Stars to win the Charity Cup...This guy is one of the clueless, stupid and ignorant ever analyist in the history of football...he represents most of the Kickoff forum guys....football is unpredictable, if Pirates beats Man City that doesn't imply anything except that particular situation or incident,,,so guys be realist and grow older not younger re: knowledge and the whole intake of the beautiful game,,,and by the way: Downs threw everyone:Mpangase, Dembele,Nguzane,Siyanda,Katongo, who sum haven't signed for the new season...so save your breath: The Sky Is Still The Limit....Well done coach
