Massive player exodus is killing Ghana football - Kotoko coach Dramani

Asante Kotoko coach Mas-Ud Dramani admits the alarming rate of player exodus from the local leagues is stifling the development of football in Ghana. Clubs in Ghana are now only looking to find talents only to quickly sell them off for cash used primarily to run affairs of the said club. The trend is directly linked to the lowered standards and quality in the various local competitions. Clubs must almost overhaul their entire team on a seasonal basis after losing their players to the bigger bucks to even places not even noted for football. But conditions of services for players in the local leagues are extremely poor. Poor wages and salaries and inferior medical attention to injured players plus the lack of proper infrastructure leave players with virtually no other choice but to move outside in search of greener pastures. Kotoko coach Dramani who himself is heavily hit with the same trend of massive player exodus this transfer season, says measures must be put in place to mitigate the problem since its killing the local game. “For Ghana football to progress, we need to let players stay on for at least three years, without being transferred outside, he told Metro fm. “If this is done, surely the league is going to be rich, because our quality players would stay, but unfortunately if a player emerges, we cash on him, hence making the league to suffer for that. “We then have to start nurturing and this is due to the difficult economic situation, which seems inevitable at the moment.”
