Poor player recruitments is what has brought Ghana Football to it knees – Former Kotoko striker Saddick Adams
Former Asante Kotoko SC and Ashanti Gold SC striker, Saddick Adams believe the current state of Ghana Football is as a result of poor recruitment by clubs.
According to Saddick, the clubs have failed to spend huge amount of money for better players rather recruiting average and poor players for their respective teams.
Ghanaian giants Asante Kotoko SC and Accra Hearts of Oak SC for several seasons failed to impress in the CAF Inter-Club competition, raising questions about the quality of talents in the country’s elite division.
Recently, the Black Galaxies also failed to reach the quarter final stage of the Championship for Africa Nations in Algeria earlier this year after losing 2-0 to Niger in the knockout stage which also threw cold water on the BetPawa Premier League.
Saddick Adams says, the decline in the domestic league is because the clubs have failed to recruit the right players into their various teams.
“Sometimes the kind of players our clubs recruit into the senior side, it is also not helping our league and so that is the most important thing that is happening.
“Because when you compare those day’s league and now, it’s far far different.
“It is not that they don’t know how to recruit but they want the quantity not the quality, the clubs don’t want to spend on quality players.
“Maybe they have the money to buy the quality player but they will rather use the money to buy the quantity of the players.
“That’s making the league not have much quality, we have quantity but not much quality players” Sadick Adams told Radio Gold.
