Ebusua Dwarfs coach Bashir Hayford has launched a scathing attack at Ghana defenders Samuel Inkoom and Harrison Afful, insisting that they are typical examples why many people fail to extend help to players.
According to the outspoken manager, he was the one who brought the duo to Asante Kotoko during the 2017-18 season and provided them shelter and food at a point before the club took over those duties, and also gave them the opportunity to play in the Ghana Premier League as the club went on to win the title that season.
However, the former Ashanti Gold coach claims the two players have not looked back to show him gratitude.
"Samuel Inkoom and Harrison Afful were depending on me for daily bread before being accepted by Asante Kotoko but none of them has even looked back to say thank you or give me a gift as a sign of appreciation," Hayford told Radio Silver.
"These are some of the things players do that people brand them as ungrateful. Some of these things definitely block the chance of others. I'm not saying they should come and provide all my needs but at least, a word of appreciation is enough," he added.
Inkoom, who currently plays for Sudanese giants Al Merriekh, left Kotoko in 2009 to join Swiss side FC Basel before having stints with Dnipro, D.C United, Bastia and Boavista.
Afful, on the other hand, plays for Major Soccer League side Columbus Crew, but has had stints with former Caf Champions League side Esperance and spent seven seasons with the Tunisian side.
