Ghanaian footballer released by club for ‘carrying bad luck’

Mohammad Anas has been released by TS Galaxy over bad luck

SOUTH AFRICA: Ghanaian forward Mohammed Anas has been released by TS Galaxy following complaints about the ‘bad luck’ he’s come with to the club he plays for.

According to South African reports, some TS Galaxy players approached the club leadership and pointed out that the Ghanaian striker has bad luck which is affecting the team on the pitch. This influenced the club’s decision to fire the Ghanaian footballer.

The Ghanaian striker joined Free State Stars and they were relegated before he moved to Polokwane City where they suffered a similar fate. He then made a move to Black Leopards and they were also relegated.

Subsequently, he transferred to TS Galaxy and this has now sparked concerns among the players that they would be relegated if the Ghanaian is not sacked.

According to South Africa’s Citizen News newspaper, the Galaxy players raised their concern about Anas having bad luck and transferring it to the whole team.

“Every team he’s played for here (in South Africa) has either dodged relegation by a whisker or got relegated. He was at Maritzburg and they merely survived relegation that season. He was at Free State Stars when they were relegated and the same happened at Polokwane City.

“Last season he was with Black Leopards and the same thing happened. The players were worried that they are trying everything but the results are just not coming. He was quietly released by the club last week,” said the source.

In 2017, a post-match interview by Anas went viral after he thanked his wife and girlfriend. He, however, denied being unfaithful, saying, “My family knows that I call my daughter my girlfriend. That’s what I was talking about. I don’t have a girlfriend.”

The Kumasi-born moved to South Africa in 2016 from Eswatini and has represented five clubs including Maritzburg United and Black Leopards.
