Ghana's current crop of players weakest - Alhaji Raji

Former Ghana League Clubs Association (GHALCA) Chairman Alhaji Ali Raji says the current crop of players in the Ghanaian top flight league are the worst he has seen in his entire time in football administration.

Many have expressed divergent opinions when it comes to standard of the Ghana league and the former GHALCA capo has waded into the growing number of concerns in regards to the quality of football on the local scene.

“The worst crop of players I have ever seen is that of this generation. I have seen at least three (3) or four (4) generations of footballers and I can say that the quality of players we have currently cannot be compared to any of the past generations," Raji told Happy FM.

In an attempt to outline the cause of this menace, the erstwhile Eleven Wise director slammed past governments and coaches of our various clubs as the cause.

“The bad economic standard, which has been the reason for frequent player transfers, is the cause because the few skilled players have to move out of the shores of Ghana for greener pastures. Moreover, the qualities of some of our coaches are very disgusting. If you are a coach and you can’t transform raw talents, then you are not a good coach. Our coaches have failed in polishing our talents into stardom."
