Ex-Ghana captain CK Akunnor is thrilled to see more Ghanaian players compete in elite European club competitions.
Six Ghanaian players play in the prestigious UEFA Champions League with many others in the Europa League.
These players make huge impacts whenever they are in the Black Stars team.
Many countries shudder at the prospect of facing the Black Stars which is now dominated by several foreign-based players.
And captain Akunnor is excited to see Ghanaian players commanding important positions in their foreign clubs especially during prestigious competitions like the Champions League.
“It is very good for our players as it keeps them busy,” he told Radio Gold.
“It is however unfortunate the Essien is not part of it but I hope by the second round he will be registered for the competition.
“Aside that I think the other players are doing well playing in the Champions League.
“It is also very good for coach Kwesi Appiah as it gives him quality to work with.”
