Golden Dream Suspends Player After Reports Of Expensive Sale Plan

Golden Dream Football Club has suspended player Zaza Roberts from participating in football activities in the country for an indefinite period, following reports that the team intends for him to leave at the end of the season for nothing less than U$2,000.
According to the club, it has decided to suspend the Bong and Lofa County-related youngster because he has failed to form part of the team’s activities for the past weeks, missing several practices, official games and decided to reside in Bong and Lofa Counties without the team’s consent.
Zaza’s suspension comes in the wake of reports that the Sinkor Sub-Committee third division side is not willing to have him released to another club that may be interested in him, because of the belief that there has been a huge expense incurred in the past year for his upkeep and career.
According to the report, the team is not considering to have Zaza leave, and they are demanding US$2,000 for the star player who seems to be out of contract with the club.
In 2021, the youngster signed a 2-year contract with Golden Dream from Kpatolee United Sports Association (KUSA) in a deal worth US$175
Since his move, the 18-year-old helped the club clinch last year’s third division championship in Sinkor.
It’s understood that the winger’s deal with Dream expired at the end of last season, but he continued to feature for the club up to the commencement of the current campaign on a mutual agreement unsigned.
The young ace played four games for Alex Ferguson Anderson’s side in the first phase of the ongoing league, and netted 5 times, before sustaining a hamstring injury that kept him sidelined for months.
However, the former KUSA player opted not to continue with Golden Dream after a promise to afford him a tryout in Europe fell through. Pewee immediately put in a transfer request following his injury setback and decided to make a move to Bong County 3rd division club, Phebe Athletic FC.
Coach Anderson has meanwhile demanded US$2,000 for the transfer of the Lofa County native.
When contacted, Anderson said he spent over US$3,000 on Roberts’ upkeep in Montserrado and claimed the winger is still attached, with two seasons left in the contract, but didn’t disclose how many seasons was penned initially.
Therefore, he said any team coming to sign the player must restitute the losses he incurred.
Meanwhile, Roberts and his agent, Jonathan Kien, are pushing through legal means to strike a deal with the Athletes in the second half of the 2023-24 LFA Bong 3rd Division League.
