While GFA retired Christian Atsu at age 31, Messi won THE 2022 World Cup at age 35 – Sonnie Badu takes Ghana Football Association



Sonnie Badu descended on the Ghana Football Association with accusations that they retired Christian Atsu from Ghana Black Stars at an early age of 31.

Ghanaian gospel minister Sonnie Badu has taken on Ghana Football Association with accusations that they retired Christian Atsu from Ghana Black Stars when he was only 31 while Argentine’s legend Lionel Messi is still playing for his country at age 35.

In a lengthy post on Facebook he said at the age of 35 Lionel Messi played for Argentina  and won the 2022 FIFA World Cup whiles Christian Atsu was at home watching Ghana on Television.

Taking his worry to facebook, he said;

“Dear GFA @chris_atsu has been finally laid to rest. However, let me say this .. Let this be a reform of mindset and a change of attitude…. I know our @ghana_fa_official chairman will do things differently

“I heard in recent interviews people saying that he was the Messi of Ghana… Well you guys retired him quick – whiles Messi is still playing the World Cup… Messi is 35 and Astu was 31 …

“Let us learn how to make players feel important while they are alive. We should not wait for something to happen to them before we take over their funeral expenses and all of that.

“We know that, most of the players get injured during international duties And it is to no suprise, that they end up losing their position, in their club teams and also national teams…. That’s why players like @thomaspartey5 would rather put their 💯 in club rather than national teams…

“Those low division teams in Turkey are called playing to survive and keep fit .. the clubs knows it and so they fraustrate players

“I heard the tribute read from the club , he told the coach he either plays or goes to see his family.. if one could only turn back time .. it shows how commited he was to his career …champ you died a hero and you scored you last goal … it cannot be forgotten by the club…… rest well .. your send off was beautiful…”
