Alhaji Karim Grusah, the owner of King Faisal FC, has said that his club is ready to compete in the 2022/2023 CAF Inter-Club Competitions.
There is one slot, for Ghana, each in the CAF Champions League and the Confederation Cup respectively as a result of the CAF coefficient and as such, only the winner of the Ghana Premier League (GPL) and the MTN FA Cup qualifies to compete in Africa.
Currently leading the Ghana Premier League (GPL) table after matchday seven, King Faisal FC will earn the right to participate in the CAF Champions League if they are able to maintain their lead till the end of the season.
Alhaji Grusah, when asked if King Faisal can go to Africa with its numerous financial implications, said that they are ready to compete in Africa because the government will cushion them with some financial support.
Speaking on a Kumasi-based FM station, he said “King Faisal are ready to go to work with the support of the government. I have a big vision for the club and it’s my prayer that we will win the league.”
He also urged the public to dismiss reports that they have not been able to pay the winning bonus of players for their excellent start to the season.
“It is not true that we are owing winning bonus. We settled all outstanding debts with regards to winning bonus,” he added.
