2 min read

‘The Brazilians of African football’ a term used to describe Ghana because of the talents the country have produced over the years. From the era of C K Gyamfi,Osei Kofi, Mohammed Polo, Robert Mensah, Abdul Razak down to Abedi Ayew Pele Ghana have always bred quality in every generation.

In recent times,Samuel Osei Kuffour,Micheal Essien, Sulley Muntari, Asamoah Gyan, and the likes prove Ghana’s worth in terms of talents production. Today, most of the talented Ghanaian players cannot make it to the top as their predecessors did in their respectivel eras.

Finding answers to why players of nowadays can’t reach their full potential, astute football administrator and CEO of New Edubiase FC, Abdul Salam Yakubu pinpoints complacency as a disease killing many talents in Ghana.

In an interview with the new takeovers of the airwaves, Wontumi TV/101.3 FM Abdul Salam said “Most of the Ghanaian players are very lazy.When they are able to travel outside to continue their footballing career, they become complacent and think they have made it. They don’t set targets for themselves, keeps enjoying luxurious life and before they realize they become rusty.”

Putting the icing on the cake, he cited former New Edubiase star Asiedu Attobrah as a clear-cut example.

“Asiedu gained a recognition by K.V Kortrijk in Belgium after having a great season in 2015 with New Edubiase FC. When he arrived in Belgium, instead of him to have worked hard to gain a position in the starting line up he became totally complacent thinking he has reached his self-actualization stage.He terminated his contract without my knowledge (not even his agent)and came back to Ghana.” He asserted.
