Former Liberty professionals midfielder Reuben Acquah has charged GFA to lift the level of Ghana league with regards to players welfare and when that is done no Ghanaian player will ever think of leaving to another country.
Player exodus has been one of the bane to progress of Ghana football and the 23-year-old is of the view that, it’s because of the low financial packages players receive which is not enough, that compels players like himself to leave for other countries
Speaking to Halftimegh.com the SV Ried Star man said, for players to stay longer in Ghana league, the league managers should ensure that players salaries and benefits are significant
“No Ghanaian player will love to come here and play football if you look at the racism and discrimination happening in Europe, we wouldn’t have come here to play if our league was paying well, I will not have come here”- Reuben Told Listowel
“So, I will urge the leaders to do something about it, they should pay players in the league well and they will give out their best, if you look at north and South African players, they hardly move away from their leagues because they are all paid well. We should try and emulate them and player exodus will be a thing of the past”- He concluded
The fast risen star, started his playing career with a colts club based in Madina called Madina Manchester, he moved to Red Bull soccer academy and later joined Liberty professionals in 2014, after a season with the scientific soccer lads, Acquah moved to Europe and he’s been there since.
