I don’t have money for food – Ghanaian footballer who plays in Zimbabwe shares sad story

A young Ghanaian footballer who plies his trade in the Zimbabwean league has shared his sad story of how he is struggling financially in the country.

Identified as Dela Akorli, the player who is stranded in Zimbabwe, has pleaded for assistance after being abandoned by Bulawayo Chiefs to the point that he is unable to buy food.

The 19-year-old Ghanaian centre forward is currently stuck in Bulawayo because he doesn’t even have money for a flight back home and described his experience as a nightmare.

According to the report first shared by MyNewsGH, Della’s contract with Amakhosi expires on December 31, 2022. Due to the Chiefs’ dire financial circumstances, which are even compromising the club’s very existence, Akorli has not been paid in months along with the other team members.

“Since we finished the league, I had no money on me, to even buy food or data bundle. I have no entertainment at home it has been very tough for me.

“I couldn’t watch the World Cup that took place recently. Life has been very tough for me,” he added.

Until a teammate offered him shelter in his apartment in Bulawayo, Arkoli claims he was having trouble paying his rent.

The Amakhosi striker says he has engaged the Footballers Union of Zimbabwe (FUZ), so that he can get his money and go back to Ghana.

“I want to go back home because the stress that I have gone through this season with this club (Chiefs) is too much for me,” said Arkoli.

Additional information from Soccer24, a Bulawayo Chiefs executive is attempting to minimize the damage by procuring Arkoli aeroplane tickets to leave the country without paying him the money he is owed.
