Berekum Chelsea coach Solomon Odwo has picked 28 players for the FirsTrust GHALCA 6 tournament but last season’s top scorer Kofi Owusu is absent.
The Nigerian trainer has blended youth and experience with ex-Ghana youth striker Saddick Adams, Edward Kpodo and Richard Oti, formerly of Asante Kotoko.
But Owusu, who scored 19 goals last season to win the Ghana Premier League goalking, was not included.
This has fueled speculations that the former Okwahu United and Aduana Stars striker is on his way out of the club.
Berekum Chelsea open their campaign against AshantiGold in the tournament’s opener on Thursday.
