Ghanaian born French international, Marcel Desailly has professed that his Lizzy sports complex investment was a failed one
The sports complex which was named after his late mother according to Marcel has been eating into his private funds as he has needed to over the last 10 years inject his personal money into the sports complex to keep it running
Some Marcel says he is done doing just as any prudent business minded person would do.
Discussing his investment in Ghana, the 52-year-old said the facility wasn’t profitable and he was running into debts.
“When I was a soccer player, I already had the idea and vision to come back to Ghana and settle and develop sports infrastructure,” Desailly told Joy FM.
“I knew it was a little bit poor especially in sports, so I had plans. I missed the chance to be the coach of the Black Stars because of this investment as well.
“I had to follow on this investment. As of now, I’m done. It’s not profitable.”
He further stated: “If you want something to last, you need to bring expertise, we were about 90 people in the sports department alone. Every year I was putting my private money back into the system.
“So, after 10 years, I’ve spent over $1.5 million every year supporting the business to cover the debt accumulated.
“Maintenance of the pitch, paying of salaries, generator, and others. That is why no one comes into those services for kids because it’s not profitable.”
