“The way things were unfolding at Star Madrid, I decided that I will leave at the end of the season and return to coach in the Premier League.

“It had a lot of effects on the club, I was working without getting any salary and even my pocket money goes into the club.
“Things were getting worse and the players were sacrificing and so the pressure became too much.
“The moment I decided to leave, Bibiani Gold Stars also came in and with the financial strength and good organization, I can work with them.” Michael Osei told Wontumi Sports.
