Alhaji Grusah breaks silence on Shilla Illiasu’s failed Arsenal move allegations

Veteran football administrator Alhaji Grusah has hit back at former Black Stars center back Shilla Illiasu for saying he (Alhaji Grusah) cost him a move to Arsenal in 2006.

According to Alhaji Grusah, he knew nothing about the move and there’s no reason why he would stop a move that will benefit he himself.
Shilla illiasu after an impressive performance at the 2006 World Cup in Germany grabbed the attentions of a number of big European clubs. After an impressive trial at Arsenal, a move failed to materialize.
Speaking to Asempa FM recently, the former King Faisal man blamed Alhaji Grusah for not making the move happen.
An allegation Alhaji Grusah has swiftly repudiated in an interview with Nhyira FM.
“How can I deny my player from signing for a big club like Arsenal?”
“I was entitled to receiving onward transfer fee so it would’ve been irresponsible on my part to block the move.
“He should concentrate on getting a good job and stop putting the blame on me.
“I personally wasn’t aware about his supposed link to Arsenal. I would have been a very proud man to see one of my players playing for Arsenal”, Alhaji Grusah concluded.
