Ghana legend, Mohammed Ahmed “Polo” has told Radio Gold Sports that, he will sell one of his houses in Lome in the Republic of Benin to help develop his football academy.
Polo’s soccer academy has been on the back burner for some time now due to the closure of the Kaneshie Sports Complex where the team held its training sessions.
The good news however is that, the Chief of Odumse, Nene Fiesu Gblie III, has honoured the former Hearts of Oak and Black Stars legend, Mohammed Ahmed Polo, with a 13.17-acre land for the construction of an academy in the community.
The donation is meant to inspire Polo to unearth and develop the potentials of the youth to adapt to Ghana’s brand of football.
How to fund the project remains a difficult task but Polo told Radio Gold Sports of how he intends to kick start the mission.
“I have a house in Lome [Benin], I’m going to sell that house to come and develop Ghana football, this is the passion.
“I’m selling that house in Lome and bring the money here to come and develop Ghana football.
“I have the passion, so I’m selling that house.” Mohammed Polo told Radio Gold Sports.
The land according to Polo will be used to construct two astro turfs, four-storey hostels with 40 rooms, a reception as well as a hostel manager’s office and wash rooms.
The project will also include three administration blocks, a conference room, a research centre, a gym, boardroom and other facilities that will enhance the smooth operation of the academy such as training, marketing and promotion, statistics, counselling and ICT departments, three-storey classroom block, headmaster and assistant headmaster’s offices and staff common rooms.
