'Bad boy' Gbarmy leads BYC exodus 'Bad boy' Gbarmy leads BYC exodus


The midfielder has been told he can leave the Club after more than four seasons in the rank of the Liberian Champions.

Just few days after serving his suspension, Barrack Young Controller (BYC) has put midfielder Benjamin Gbarmy on sale.

The President of the Club Sekou Konneh told a news conference in Monrovia recently that the club is now ready to sell the player to any higher bidder.

BYC prior to their CAF Champions League paring against Stade de Malien last month suspended the outstanding midfielder for allegedly breaching the Club’s Code of Conduct.

Konneh said the communication to the player said his suspension would have been lifted at the end of the first phase of the LFA National League, but he has reportedly refused to turnout for practice as mandated in the letter.

Gbarmy has however denied the allegations.

He described the gifted left-footed midfielder as one of the best players in the squad, but warned that BYC do not take in-disciplinary issues lightly and as such the Club is ready to let go the resourceful lad if he chooses to leave.

However, Konneh did not disclose how much BYC would sell the player for, but confirmed that he still have two and a half-year contract which is subject to a buyout-clause.

It can be recalled that Gbarmy and some players were suspended by the LFA after the National Under-20 Team alleged misbehavior following the youth team failed campaign in the 2015 Caf Under-20 championship qualifiers against the Young Elephant of Ivory Coast.

As Captain of the U-20 team he (Gbarmy) led a protest against the FA for reportedly abandoning the team after the defeat to Ivory Coast. The player is noted for not hiding his feelings.

Some soccer pundits rate Gbarmy as the best attacking midfielder in the local league and some fans were seen calling for his inclusion after BYC frustrating 1-1 draw against SuperSport United on Sunday.

At the same time Konneh has also confirmed the departure of Junior Barshall, Francis Jallabah, and Varney Dukuly.

Barshall and Dukuly were loaned to struggling LPRC Oilers, while Jallabah signed with Monrovia Club Breweries.
