”We met with the ministry of Youth and Sports and that is what the government has decided so we are waiting for the announcement of the package probably in two weeks time.

”The government made it clear that they understand the importance and implications of the country winning the continental trophy.

“So the plans are far advanced to push Chelsea all the way to the top because it’s been a long time since the country won a trophy at club levels.”

Debutants Berekum Chelsea defeated three-time African Champions Raja Casablanca 5-0 at the Golden City Park on Sunday in the penultimate round first leg tie.
