Former Black Stars player Windsor Kofi Abbrey last week in a radio interview appealed to the public to reunite with his friend George Oppong Weah, who was his playmate during their days at Tonnerre Yaounde of Cameroon.
Mr. Kofi Poku a close ally of President George Oppong Weah has stepped up to help the 1982 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) player to reunite with his best friend.
Mr. Poku who is a known friend of the Liberian President confirmed to the GNA Sports that both players were good friends from their playing days till President Weah was elected.
“Before he became president, both retired players met regularly in Accra anytime George Weah was in Ghana. There were even occasions Abbrey spent a lot of days at the residence of the president.
“They played together at Madina as old stars and i don’t know how the Ghanaian legend lost the contact of the president. But i would do my best to link them up,” he stated.
Mr. Poku, however, admitted the challenges involved in reuniting the two retired players saying “now that he is the president, it had been very difficult to link up with him due to the numerous protocol challenges.”
“There were days i travel to Liberia to see him and after days it proves futile so I had to return to Ghana,” Mr. Poku lamented.
Mr. Poku, however, noted that he would still work the best way to have the two reunite.
Abbrey played for Eleven Wise, Accra Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko and was a regular member of the Black Stars in the early 80’s.
