Ghana Legend Dan Owusu Provides Road Map To Raising The Standard Of Ghana Premier League
Dan Owusu, a Ghanaian footballing legend has called for a stakeholder dialogue in order to find appropriate remedies to the falling standards of the local league.
Many Ghanaian football fans and pundits have spoken out about the low standard of the domestic league, with some offering some pointers as to how to raise it.
The Ghana Premier League is currently experiencing historic levels of low patronage, leading to many stakeholders raising concerns.
Dan Owusu believes a stakeholder engagement will help bring out varying solutions to the phenomenon of low patronage.
The former goal king admits that the challenge is a difficult one but it will require a stakeholder meeting to find solutions. He revealed that during his playing days, footballers had jobs or businesses aside the football so they were able to remain in the local league, this meanwhile, is not the case with the current generation of footballers whose sole occupation is football so would readily leave the shore of the country for greener pastures.
He told Bryt FM that it is difficult for an individual to run a team, so it is important for stakeholders to meet to find solutions to challenges facing the game.
