Ghana Premier League side Legon Cities is trending for the wrong reasons today.

The club on Tuesday announced the death of one of its goalkeepers Sylvester Sackey who passed away after a short illness.

On Wednesday, reports indicated that William Essu, a teammate of the just departed Sylvester Sackey (Legon Cities), is also said to be very sick.

According to sources, the goalkeeper is owed by the Legon Cities FC in salaries and bonuses.

All efforts to get the club to settle him to get treatment have proved futile.

This has seen the club receive a lot of backlash in the media space.

According to the club, "efforts are being made to address the player's situation."

Meanwhile, Ghana's government also owes William Essu. 



In a letter chanced upon by PrimesNews, the player asked Ghana U23 coach Ibrahim Tanko to speak on their behalf for their bonus to be released.

This follows their qualification to the U-23 AFCON overcoming Algeria in a two-legged affair.
