Former Asante Kotoko and Ghana legend, Malik Jabir has issued a strong warning to controversial football administrator, Alhaji Grunsah for reigning insults on him on radio.

Jabir in an interview with Kumasi based Fox FM days ago opined against the belief that the Anas’ documentary solely to be blamed for the country’s football woes.

The former Africa Player of the year award winner further went to cite instances where Alhaji Grunsah sent the FA to court after his club King Faisal was deducted points leading to them relegated from Ghana’s top flight and according to him, the case delayed the commencement of the league for several months before the case was amicably resolved.

Accra Great Olympics took a cue from King Faisal’s action by taking the FA to court when they also got relegated after the end of the 2016/17 Ghana Premier League.

Upon hearing this on the radio, Alhaji Grunsah expressed his displeasure towards Jabir, casting aspersions on his intellect, competence and family.

Reacting to Grunsah, Jabir sounded a warning to Grunsah and asked him to stay off his family.

”It is true we grew up together at Aheneboboano(Kumasi) when I came to Kumasi. I only made a suggestion on the necessary reforms we need to undertake to get football back to the level we all expect. I criticised King Faisal, Great Olympics and the Disciplinary Committee for their negligence and partly blamed them for deciding to seek redress in court. Why should Alhaji Grunsah insult me for saying the truth? Is he averse to the truth or dissenting views? I am older than him (Grunsah). He has cut short his life with the insults on me.” Jabir told Light FM, Kumasi

“I have a responsible family. My wife was the former Headmistress of Yaa Asantewaa Girls Senior High School. I have lawyer child and two other university graduates. I am a practicing Muslim but chose to keep faith with one wife unlike him. Why should he turn on my family when the conversation is on football? I am not doing same but all who have had the opportunity to listen to us will judge and know the wise among us. He should be very careful of me. We are all Zongo boys and he should know that. I can not be intimidated” Jabir ended.
