Former Hearts Of Oak attacking midfielder who now plays for TP Mazembe, Torric Jebrin has made a passionate appeal to the government of Ghana to come to the aid of players who ply their trade in the DR Congo because they are stranded due to COVID-19 restrictions.

According to him, they have been struggling to feed themselves and also pay rent because they are cash-strapped, having footed all bills since football activities were halted in four months ago.


Speaking to Accra-based Angel 102.9FM, the talented Ghanaian international called on the ruling government to help evacuate them since the place is not safe to live at the moment due to party politics.

“We are stranded here in Dr Congo Our money and food is finished.We don’t have food to eat. We can’t afford to pay our rents so we have all moved to leave with one of our colleague in one room. We plead with gov’t to come to our aid,” Torric Jebril to Angel FM jn Accra Tuesday evening.

A similar situation has been reported in Ethiopia after a video of Ghanaian players went viral Tuesday morning.
