Godfred Yeboah, former captain of Kumasi Asante Kotoko has bemoaned quick player exodus as the reason for drop in quality in the Ghanaian local league.
The Former left back made his worries clear when he spoke on Boss FM on Friday morning.
“During our time, we all tried our best to catch the eyes of the National team coaches at the Black Stars, so we were not in any hurry to move out” Yeboah revealed.
However, Yeboah admitted that it is normal for players in Ghana to move out and play in the foreign leagues in order to seek greener pasture and experience. Yet he explained that they had to stay and play for longer period because of club policy.
“I can disclose that I had good offers but Coach Ernst Middindorp, then Head Coach of Kotoko told me he will not allow me to leave because he had no replacement for me so I had to stay”, he said.
Godfred then advised the current crop of players to take their time and mature before leaving the local scene.”Everything is not about the money but the future is important”, he emphasised.
He then expressed his optimism of his former club beating their arch rivals, Accra Hearts of Oak in the Week 10 fixture between the two sides on Sunday.
