"I don't have enough funds to continue the ongoing Ghana Premier League so I have quit," he told Accra-based Happy FM

"I will not be at Tarkwa to play the last game against Medeama in this first round."

In January this year, the club's presidet revealed he will put the side up for sale because they are bankrupt.

The club's financial woes worsened by the abrogation of the First Capital Bank’s sponsorship of the Ghana Premier League.
