Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Sonnie Badu, multiple award-winning gospel singer and founder of Rock Hill Church in Georgia, United States has called out the Ghana Football Association (GFA) in the aftermath of the passing of Christian Atsu asking them to show more love to the players whilst they were still alive

In an Instagram post via his official page, Sonnie Badu wrote “Dear GFA @chris_atsu has been finally laid to rest. However, let me say this .. Let this be a reform of mindset and a change of attitude…. I know our @ghana_fa_official chairman will do things differently. I heard in recent interviews people saying that he was the Messi of Ghana… Well you guys retired him quick – whiles Messi is still playing the World Cup… Messi is 35 and Astu was 31”

He would continue by adding “Let us learn how to make players feel important while they are alive. We should not wait for something to happen to them before we take over their funeral expenses and all of that. We know that, most of the players get injured during international duties And it is to no surprise, that they end up losing their position, in their club teams and also national teams…. That’s why players like @thomaspartey5 would rather put their in club rather than national teams”

Sonnie Badu would also cite the example a certain Jerry Akaminko “@jakaminko was at his peak when he got injured playing for Ghana and everyone suddenly forgot about him… He ended up playing for a low division Turkish team – that he had fighting for his Monies owed . Those low division teams in Turkey are called playing to survive and keep fit .. the clubs knows it and so they frustrate players.

He would conclude by adding “I heard the tribute read from the club , he told the coach he either plays or goes to see his family.. if one could only turn back time .. it shows how commited he was to his career …champ you died a hero and you scored you last goal … it cannot be forgotten by the club…… rest well .. your send off was beautiful”
