Kwesi Appiah calls on government to design policies to stop player exodus

Head Coach of the senior national team, the Black Stars, Kwesi Appiah is calling on government to design policies that will help stop player exodus.

A lot of young footballer leave the shores of Ghana to ply their trade all around the world, with some going to very dangerous parts of the globe because of poor wages.

In recent years, the Ghana Premier League has lost most of the budding talents to leagues such as the Tanzania top flight, Zambia and even Libya.

Coach Kwesi Appiah believes, if the government can design a policy where corporate entities will own clubs it will help stop the rate of player exodus in Ghana.

"For me, I believe the government should make a policy that all cooperate institutions should adopt a club or a colts clubs because if an individual should runs a club single-handedly, he cannot survive in the system for five continuous years and everything will break down." Kwasi Appiah said.

"With this players will be able to get stay in the country during their active days because there are some clubs who still owe players three months salary."

Ghana is one of the West African country with the highest rate of player exodus, a trended that has eroded the domestic league of quality.

Meanwhile, colts football which use to be the basic level of football is no more with several academies springing up.
