Local players struggle due to poor planning - Dr Nyaho Tamakloe

Board member of Accra Hearts of Oak, Dr. Nyaho Nyaho-Tamakloe has blamed poor planning as one of the reasons why some local players have struggled to play in Ghana.

According to Dr. Nyaho-Tamakloe football agents are fond of duping them of their hard-earned money and later dump them at clubs with ‘slave contracts’ that last a lifetime.
He opined that when players become over burned in such situations they seek for opportunities elsewhere and end up destroying their otherwise bright career.

Dr. Nyaho-Tamakloe believes that if players will take their time and carefully plan their professional careers, then they will not live a life of penury when they retire.
“I think the biggest problem for some of these young boys is planning, they often don’t know how to plan their future. In any profession, bad planning will definitely end you up in a bad life,” Dr. Nyaho-Tamakloe said in an interview.

He added, “These days we hear of managements handling these small boys so when they are brought to the club to be signed on, they charge huge sums of money but they are not managed properly. These managers take a big share of the money then they leave them to the club.”

The long-serving Hearts of Oak board member additionally said that the players later become a burden to their former clubs when things do not work out for them.
