Former Hearts of Oak and Blackstars player, Mohammed Polo has attributed Ghana’s inability to clinch the African Cup of Nations trophy after 38 years to mismanagement of our Juvenile and local football.
Mohammed Polo who was speaking with Countryman Songo on Salt Fire Sports said the managers of our football have failed to implement a succession plan that would develop the youth to take over the senior national teams.
He believes if the Junior teams are well groomed and mentored, they can win trophies for the country and end the over three decades trophy drought.
Polo added aside the Juvenile teams, attention had not been given to the local clubs and players highlighting they are equally talented as those playing abroad and must be given maximum attention.
Speaking on Salt 95.9 FM, Mohammed Polo said: “if we look at the teams that won the African Cup for us in the past, majority of them were home based players and it’s about time we managed the clubs and teams well”.
“Our local football is managed anyhow and that is one of the reasons we cannot win trophies” – he added
