Ghanaian clubs are financially weak to contend in Africa – Henry Asante Twum
Communications Director for the Ghana Football Association [GFA], Henry Asante Twum has actually firmly insisted Ghanaian clubs are financially inadequate to complete in Africa.
Clubs who represent the nation in the Caf Champions League and Confederations Cup have always had a hard time to contend due to the absence of monetary power.
According to Asante Twum, the transfer market price of Al Ahly SC gamers which is around $100m and Al Hilal striker Vinny Bongonga Kombe who scored against Kotoko was signed for $200k to make a strong structure versus the financial strength of Ghanaian clubs.
“Let’s honestly ask ourselves how many gamers among Kotoko present generation worth more than $150k,” he told Kumasi based Kessben FM.
“So football exceeds using the pitch. To attract quality, you have to be quality.
“So it is not just enough being Hearts of Oat, Medeama or Kotoko,” Mr Henry Asante Twum included.
Asante Twum also suggested that Ghanaian clubs must position themselves extremely well to be able to bring in quality materials which the relevance of great cash is non-negotiable.
“Nevertheless, as I speak the market Ghana football is not in great standing and this lacks dissimulation,” he said.
