A former King Faisal player Kwabena Poku has narrated how he often clashed with club owner Alhaji Abdul Karim Gruzah over the use of ‘juju’ black magic for their matches.
”I used to fight with Alhaji over juju. He will bring the thing but I will reject it and it will end up in some exchanges. I never accepted juju at King Faisal. We fought a lot of times,” he revealed on Asempa FM.
Opoku played for more than ten years for the Kumasi-based side and recounts the over-reliance on superstition to win matches.
The former BA United player also said the love for black magic nearly ruined his career.
”When I started my career, I was doing juju but later on when I got away from it, I realized it made me more serious. It made training hard as I believed the training was the only juju.
”At BA United and some other clubs, I used to do juju but I regretted later and got away from it. If you train hard and rely on God, you’ll do better things than the juju.”
