Berekum Chelsea are set to withdraw from the CAF Champions League.

Berekum Chelsea are set to withdraw from the CAF Champions League.

Berekum Chelsea are on the verge of withdrawing from the 2014 CAF Champions League qualifiers due to the lack of funds, GHANASoccenet.com is reliably informed.

The club are holding talks with sponsors to see if they can raise the needed cash for the two-legged tie against FC Atlabara of South Sudan.

The US$ 20,000 received from the Ghana Football Association can only foot the bill for their first leg clash.

If things do not improve, the Berekum-based side will officially confirm their pulling out to the Ghana Football Association.

Berekum Chelsea’s coffers have dried up after president Emmanuel Kyeremeh relocated to Canada.

GHANASoccernet.com understands the 2012 CAF Champions League group stage campaigners owe players and technical team three-months salaries.
