The 22 year old footballer is one of Ghana’s payers that played in the Africa U23 championship in Egypt, but his penalty miss in the bronze medal game against South Africa ensured Ghana did not qualify for the Olympic games in Tokyo

“I will plead with all Ghanaians to forgive me for missing the penalty in Egypt, it was my intention to score to make all Ghanaians proud, my intention was to score to become the hero of the day, but it didn’t go that way” Sarpong did in a shaky tone.

“My family and I have not been able to walk in town for fear of being harmed, we have received lots of verbal abuses and threats from those Ghanaians who felt hurt by my penalty miss, my mother has been attacked on several occasions when she goes to town”.

Sarpong, who played in all the matches of the tournament, also reserved some apologies to his coach Ibrahim Tanko for the disappointment.

“I also wish to apologised to coach Ibrahim Tanko and the entire technical team, and my team mates and ask them to forgive me”.
