Berekum Aresenal owner dead

Salt Fire Sports has gathered a report indicating the owner and bankroller of former Ghana Premier League side, Berekum Arsenal FC, Alhaji Yakubu Moro has passed on.

He is reported to have died in Accra after falling ill.

The renowned and outspoken football administrator has not been well for some weeks now and was receiving treatment in Berekum.

His condition wasn’t improving so he was taken to Accra but all efforts to let Alhaji Moro stay healthy failed.

Under Alhaji Moro, Berekum Arsenal earned promotion to the Ghana Premier League in 2000 and stayed on until 2013 where they got relegated.

In 2006, the Berekum club qualified for the CAF Confederation Cup but were eliminated in the second round by Angolan giants Petro Atletico.

They had eliminated Congolese side Diables Noirs in the first round of the competition.

Alhaji Moro will be buried on Friday as per Islamic practices.
