The 25-year-old shot stopper has told a radio station in Ghana, Starr FM, that the management of the club was unhappy with his refusal to use Muti cream after he felt that it caused him to concede goals.

“When I came back [from injury] they started telling me I have to use some cream but I said no, because when I was signing the contract there was no mention of the use of any cream,” Agyei told Starr FM according to Ghana Soccernet.

The goalkeeper made an impressive start to his career in the PSL but injury halted his progress.

Explaining the reasons for his return to Liberty Professionals to the Ghanaian public, he spoke of the dispute over the need for the kind of black magic that the club’s higher-ups deemed necessary.

“They call it ‘Muti’ there but in Ghana we call it ‘Juju’. I told them I will not do that because it was not in the terms when I was signing the deal,” he said on air.

“They said I have to use it because it is part of the team’s beliefs. Whenever I used it, I conceded a lot of goals.

His startling accusation implicates the coaches and management of the club in effectively forcing him to agree to termination of his contract. 

“The boss was mad at me when I eventually refused to use it.

“It was later on when I came to Ghana and I read that they have cancelled by contract.”

Agyei’s accusations come as a shock after his promising career in the PSL was cut short.
