About 28 RTU players made no plans for the Dreams match – Baba Kushibo

Real Tamale United captain Baba Gushibo has shed more light on the ongoing feud between the club’s management and the playing body.

In the outstanding 2023/24 Ghana Premier League game against Dreams FC on Wednesday afternoon, alleged reports states that RTU used imposter players instead of the official squad at the match played at Dawu.

In plans to fulfill the requirements of the game, RTU officials allegedly travelled with Division Two players,using the names and kit numbers of the official squad for these unknown players.

This is as a result of the playing team requesting for their unpaid salaries before the game against Dreams at the Theatre of Dreams.

Gushibo, speaking to Fox FM, revealed the cause of the alleged shocking act by the management.

“That is how corrupt our league has become. If RTU was able to honour this match, then I’m surprised because most of the registered players are in Tamale and some have even returned to their various towns.

“It’s obvious the match officials are not professionals and what happened in Dawu is evident enough.

“About 28 players of the squad did not report for the game and the system is there for the match officials to check the pictures on the system to ascertain who they played against.

“I dont know how the players on the teamsheet can be playing when they are in Tamale.

Baba further explained: “This happened because we asked for part of our salary arrears and the management failed address our pleas. It started before the Kotoko game and they pled for time to sort us.

“Nothing had been heard from them and it’s been recurrent so we were bothered we will end up going home with nothing.

“What they have done shows great disrespect to us their players. The guy who wore the captain armband is not Lansah because he’s still in Tamale now.”
