Former Ghanaian international Tony Yeboah has criticized the Ghana football Association for the unattractive nature of the Ghana Premier League.
The ex-Black Stars player, made 59 appearances for the team is unhappy with the low standard of the domestic top-flight. Yeboah further said he had refused to watch the local topflight due to the poor organization.
Speaking to Kumasi based Otec FM, Yeboah said, “I’ve not been watching the Ghana Premier league either from the stadium or on television. How can I watch the Ghana Premier league when the English Premier league is ongoing?
“It’s not only me who don’t watch the league. Many Ghanaians don’t go to the stadiums and prefer watching different league due to its unattractive nature.
“A white man will find time to look for solutions but not here. We need leaders who can sit down and reason why Ghanaians are not patronizing the league. It is not difficult but the leaders currently in charge don’t want to accept that their product has collapsed or is in the process of collapsing,” he said.
He continued, “Meanwhile, many Ghanaians know that things are not working. Look at what went on last season; unfair officiating from referees, no punishments to those who went against the rules. How can the Ghana FA president even tell referees to accept bribes when tempted but officiate fairly? This is unbelievable and with this and many more how can the league be attractive?”
With no doubt, Yeboah is one of the celebrated Ghanaian attackers having enjoyed stints with English Club Leeds United as well as German sides FC Saarbrucken 65 and Eintracht Frankfurt.
