Former Hearts of Lion and King Faisal player, Morrison Osei is playing hide and seek with the Ethiopian Immigration and police after he failed to pay his hotel fails.
The Ghanaian footballer in an interview revealed that his contract with Ethiopian club, Ethiopian Coffee SC was terminated after the coach that signed him left the club.
“I came here [Ethiopia] to join Ethiopian Coffee SC. But the Serbia coach who signed me got sick and left the club to his country,” Osei said on Angel FM’s Floodlight sports show.
After the coach left, Osei said a misunderstanding ensued between him and his club.
“I was trying to do everything I can to get back to Ghana and at that time my visa had expired and those I was expecting to help me disappointed me.”
“The management of the hotel I was living in reported me to the police because I failed to settle the debts. One day, I sneaked out of the hotel to a different city” and now sleep with friends.
“Negotiations with hotel staff did not go well as they do not understand the English well so they were finding it difficult to understand me.”
Osei said the Ghana Embassy is doing everything it can to bring in to Ghana but the Ethiopian Immigration is making things difficult.
“For now…I can only leave the country after paying a fee around $3500 to the Ethiopian Immigration Service as one is charged $10-a-day for overstaying.”
Osei also revealed that before the Black Stars played against Ethiopia he went to the Black Stars camp to see John Boye who was his former teammate at Hearts of Lions to ask for help.
“All I want is a visa because if I get a visa I will talk to the Ghanaians here to help me with the plane ticket” to Ghana.
