Deputy Chief Executive Officer for Macron Ghana, Alhaji Karim Sulaiman reveals how credible they are in West Africa and capable to partner the GFA.
The Ghana FA over the week signed a sponsorship deal with Macron Ghana to be its official ball sponsor for three of its products i.e Ghana Premier League, FA Cup and Division One League in a deal worth GHC 1.6 million for three years.
The signing of the deal has raised red flags over the credibility of the company Macron Ghana (Koreen Kalaga Enterprise) as there hasn’t been any official communication from the Bologna-based company on the deal signed by the FA.
“We have two official Macron distributors in Ghana, I’m in Accra and the other one is in Sunyani. If you say we are not legit, do due diligence and go to Italy and find out if we are not real distributors of Macron products in Ghana and West Africa” Alhaji Sulaiman told Kumasi based OTEC FM in an interview on their sports show.
“Just watch us and let do our work because we have not done anything wrong and the GFA will never give us a contract without doing due diligence, that is impossible” He added
“We have registered two companies in Ghana which represent Macron Ghana (ie. Procal Links Company limited and Koreen Kalaga Enterprise). When you go to Italy and talk about Macron Ghana, they will mention my name. We’ve worked with Macron for over ten (10) years so I laugh when people say we are not legit” He added.
“I’m a sportsman; I’ve played professional football in South Africa for five (5) years so I cannot bring the fake product to my Countrymen in Ghana or any other person for that matter” He concluded.
