The disenchantment with betrayal is that it never comes from your enemies. It is extremely surprising that most of the time, the people you would take a bullet for are the ones hiding behind the trigger.
This is exactly the case with former prolific Black Stars and Asante Kotoko striker Eric Bekoe, who has revealed he has been betrayed by most of the professional footballers he has helped during his playing years.
Eric Bekoe, who became a household name during his stint with Asante Kotoko, scoring 42 goals in 48 appearances for the club, made the astonishing revelation during an interview with Isaac Emmanuel Ossae, better known as Stonchist D ‘Blakk Soulja on Focal Sports on Hot 93.9FM. :
“Most footballers are very ungrateful … As a player, when you are in your prime, everyone wants to surround you … they greet you but when it is time for them to help you, they turn your back on you. back … look at Godfred Yeboah, all the players he helped neglected him. “
The overly despised Eric B abundantly revealed that “Seriously I’d rather make a mechanic my friend than a professional player because with the mechanic every time you visit him you are at least assured that he will let you eat the Waakye. (food) maybe he eats with you than a professional footballer who would screenshot your conversations to others just because you asked for help. “
Bekoe made his debut for the Black Stars coming off the bench in a friendly against Mexico on March 26, 2008, and made his way to the first World Cup qualifiers.
As well as being part of Kotoko’s squad that won the Ghana Premier League title in the 2007/08 season where he finished that season as the Ghana Premier League top scorer with 17 goals, the prolific forward has also worked with Sekondi Hasaacas, Liberty Professionals, Hearts of Lions, Berekum Chelsea and Petrojet in Egypt.
