Ghana Football Association spokesman, Henry Asante Twum has lamented the almost nonexistence of scouting by Ghanaian football clubs.
He recalled that clubs used to crisscross the country to select players for their teams and are often times in battles to sign some of the best players in the country.
According to him while in previous times clubs used to scout players with the involvement of their administrators, these days they would rather go outside of the country to sign players who they are not sure of.
He cited the examples of Stephen Oduro who he said is a Kumasi boy but played for Real Tamale United (RTU) and Dan Acquah also a Kumasi boy who ended up playing for Brong Ahafo (BA) United.
Twum Asante revealed that Accra Hearts of Oak used to complete their recruitments halfway through the season because former chairman Harry Zakour was on top of his game. He said the last time there was a tussle for a player in the league was when Kofi Abagna was involved for four months.
