Ghana football is dying – Sammy Kuffour



Former Ghana international, Osei Kuffour, has lamented that Ghana football is gradually dying.

The former Bayern Munich defender was part of the team that qualified the country for it first ever world cup appearance in Germany.

The consistency of adding up talented players to the national team in the past has been was wonderful and admirable.

Ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon, many football enthusiasts had doubt when the final 23 man squad for the tournament was released by the head coach of the team.

Ghana was among the favorite to win the trophy but after a disappointed performance, Kuffour who now works on Super Sports as pundit believes Ghana football is dying.

“Our football is dying. We lack planning and we have no backup plan for our current crop of players. We have no youth development. Our future is dead, with this attitude. I see no reason why we can’t build our team from the youth level.

“Germany decided to win the World Cup in 10 years, and in 10 years they did exactly so in Brazil. Why can’t we plan and do same. What would happen in the absence of Gyan, Dede, Jordan and Atsu? There is no plan and future for our football.” he added.
