Former Ghana junior and youth international, Sadick Adams says Ghana Premier club’s failure to spend on acquiring top players is the reason the top flight has declined in quality.
Ghana’s two top sides, Asante Kotoko and Hearts of Oak have failed to progress into the group stage of continental football in the last decade, raising questions about the quality of talents in the domestic top flight.
The home based senior national team, the Black Galaxies also failed to reach the quarter final stage of the Championship for Africa Nations in Algeria earlier this year and that further threw cold water on the BetPawa Premier League and the lower tiers.
Sadick Adams, who played for the defunct AshantoGold, Berekum Chelsea and Asante Kotoko, tells Radio Gold Sports that, the decline in the domestic first tier is because the clubs have failed to recruit the right players into their senior side.
“Sometimes the kind of players our clubs recruit into the senior side, it is also not helping our league and so that is the most important thing that is happening.
“Because when you compare those day’s league and now, it’s far far different.
“It is not that they don’t know how to recruit but they want the quantity not the quality, the clubs don’t want to spend on quality players.
“Maybe they have the money to buy the quality player but they will rather use the money to buy the quantity of the players.
“That’s making the league not have much quality, we have quantity but not much quality players” Sadick Adams told Radio Gold Sports.
Aduana fc currently sit top of the 2022/23 BetPawa Premier League table with 39 points, two better than second placed Accra Lions after 21 games into the season.
