According to the portal, Owusu narrated how he is broke and pleaded to the club management to pay the unpaid bills.

“The Chairman (Ambrose Rachier) has always been promising to come on a number of occasions to assist me but he has not been here. I am not allowed to leave  with anything out of the hotel until their is a commitment from the club that the money will be paid. As at now I don’t know when this will happen,” said Owusu.

“My parents are poor and fully depend on me and they live in Kumasi many kilometres a way from Accra. But I have been forced to reach out to them and sometimes they have been forced to travel to town and send me something little. You also know that here at the club we have also not been paid and I can’t assist them.

“I survive many a times by only eating one meal in a day and it has to be given out after the attendant has received the go a head from the manager. Some fans brought me food on Wednesday and I am really grateful for their kind gesture,” he added.

But speaking in an exclusive interview with Kumasi-based Oyerepa FM, Jackson Owusu denied being detained and revealed that he is lodged in the team’s own hotel.

“I have not been detained as reported. I’m in my room listening to music. What am I going to do outside for me to be arrested,” he told Oyerepa FM Friday.

“It’s never true. It’s a lie. How am I able to have my personal training if I have been detained as reported? It is not true. Disregard the news.

“The supporters have issues with the team owner. It’s never true I have problems in my hotel.

“It is the team’s Hotel where every player who joins the team is accommodated. How can I have a problem here?. I don’t pay anything here.”
