Aboutreika hat-trick rescues Ahly

However, veteran playmaker Abou-Treika, who came on as a substitute before the break, scored from a free-kick, converted a penalty and clinically netted a third few minutes from time to hand six-time African champions Ahly a place among the last eight.



Damn it, I was hoping for the Malians to go through. Good luck to them in the Confed Cup.

Fawaz Zouk warns Chelsea of 'dirty' African terrain
Posted On Wednesday, 16th May 2012

Chelsea warned off dirty African terrain
By Ameenu Shardow

Ex Board Member of Hearts of Oak Alhaji Fawaz Zouk tells Berekum Chelsea to brace themselves for a bumpy ride in the Caf Champions League.

The dethroned Ghana Premier League champions have qualified for the group stage of the competition in just their first continental crusade.

Chelsea however find themselves in the group of death after being drawn alongside former champions; Al Ahly, Zamalek and TP Mazembe in Group B.

And Zouk who was instrumental in Hearts of Oak’s surge to their first and only Champions League title in 2000 says the Berekum-based club should be prepared to face the unpleasant and in some extreme terms ‘dirty’ tactics of the continental game.

“We did not become African champions just like that, the terrain is very very rough,” he told Kumasi-based Angel FM.

“I think they (Chelsea) have a good chance of winning the trophy but they have to be extremely vigilant.

“I can tell you the intimidation will start right from the airport through to the hotel.

“If you are lucky they will give you a decent hotel otherwise you cannot imagine where you would be sleeping.

“They have to take their own food and water because these people are capable of poisoning it so that players will get running stomachs and cannot play.

“They have to be extremely strong and make their home matches really count and try to get some good results in away matches in order to be successful.”

Zouk added experienced Hearts of Oak officials are ready to help Chelsea’s campaign in the Ghanaian interest.

“They (Chelsea) can even come for some people in Hearts to help them because don’t forget they are representing Ghana.”

I say so because logistically it suits us well to play a Tunisia side, we don’t have to travel far and we know each other well.

This is something we wanted competitive games.”
Meanwhile Al Ahly team official Oscar Elizondo told cafonline.com that also welcomed the draw saying, “It’s a tough group but every team at this stage is strong.

Berekum Chelsea call for support

Ghana’s sole representatives at this year’s CAF Champions League, Berekum Chelsea, are rallying for national support to position the club in achieving their modest semi-final target as the money zone of the competition kick-starts on July 8.

The bankroller and owner of the Berekum club, Emmanuel Kyeremeh, told the Daily Graphic yesterday that with the kind of quality players and a possible beefing up of the squad to make each position more competitive, a national support, especially from corporate Ghana will be enough to aid the club to reaffirm Ghana football as a force on the continent.

Chelsea were grouped alongside three former champions - Al Ahaly, Zamalek (both of Egypt) and T. P. Mazembe of the Democratic Republic of Congo - at last Tuesday’s draw, but the club remain optimistic of meeting their target despite the pedigree of the oppositions.

Giving an overview of the team’s stellar performance in the competition to become Ghana’s third club after Ashgold and Hearts of Oak to get to the league stage of the competition, Mr Kyeremeh believed the players’ achievement was self-motivated.

Not ruling out the technical astuteness of the club, headed by Dutchman, Han van der Pluym, as well financial support, the bankroller said “what did the trick was the players’ yearn to be part of history”.

“The team did not qualify because of winning bonuses, they were simply self-motivated, that was all,” the affable club owner told Daily Graphic at his office in Accra.

Even with the exposure given the players, Mr Kyeremeh said the team were not in a rush to have a mass-transfer of players but would rather wish to add value to them to make them better materials on the football market.

Zamalek dismisses Chelsea's defence
22 June, 2012



Zamalek assistant coach Isamil Yousef has assured SuperSport that they have studied Berekum Chelsea of Ghana thoroughly after watching their video clips.

Yousef revealed that he and the technical staff had watched 5 matches of the Ghanaian team.

"They have a good team especially the attackers and midfielders but their defence is porous and their Goal Keeper is simply not good."

"They have mostly young players and while they did do well in their last matches they need more experience at this level in Africa and we aim to take advantage of this" ,he added.

"We respect them but will go there for the win as we want to be the champions" he ended.

Zamalek plays in group B with Al Ahly , TP Mazembe and Chelsea of Ghana.

Ghana's Chelsea US$ 4,000 to clear CAF goods

By MTNFootball.com

Thursday Jun 21, 19:43 +0200

Berekum Chelsea players line-up before a match Berekum Chelsea must stump up US$ 4,000 to clear goods to be used for the Group stage of the 2012 CAF Champions League which begins next month.

The equipment, sent by CAF, includes training bibs for the players, bibs for the media and jerseys for the ball boys as well as two captain’s armbands.


But the club have complained about the cost involved and are negotiating for a rebate.


"CAF sent the invoice for clearance to the GFA, who in turn sent it through to us," the club’s director of operations Oduro Sarfo said.


"The cost of clearing the goods is 8,000 Ghana cedis (US$ 4000), which we believe is on the high side.


"So we are at the moment negotiating with the clearing agents so that the bill will be reduced a bit for us to clear the goods."


Chelsea begin their campaign at home against Egyptian giants Zamalek on July 8 at the Golden City Park in Berekum.

Breaking News: Berekum Chelsea to play Zamalek in Accra
02 July, 2012




Footy-ghana.com can confirm that Berekum Chelsea’s first CAF Champions League group game against Egyptian giants Zamalek will take place at the Accra Sports Stadium on Sunday July 8 2012, instead of the Golden City Park in Berekum as originally scheduled.

According to our sources, the Confederation of African Football (CAF) asked for the venue change because of the lack of certain facilities at the Golden City Park, with specific reference to the lack of a doping room.

Footy-ghana.com understands that the Ghana Football Association has made frantic efforts to convince CAF to allow the game go ahead in Berekum, but those talks are feared doomed to failure.

Footy-ghana.com sources also confirm that all three of Berekum Chelsea’s home matches will take place at the Accra Sports Stadium.

Other teams in the group with Chelsea and Zamalek are former holders Al Ahly and TP Mazembe
