Bankroller and owner of Elmina Sharks, Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom, has said he fears for Ghana football following poor investment by the Ghana Football Association (GFA).
According to him, the league is unattractive due to several factors.
The Elmina-based football club secured promotion to the top flight division last season, but are on the brink of an immediate return to Division One football.
The politician cum football administrator, speaking on Class FM’s GrandStand sports show, did not hide his frustration at what he described as the wrong approach towards developing the league.
"Ghana football is in trouble. It needs to have the potential people or spectators of the football experiencing exciting clean soccer, so that it can attract sponsorship, viewership and so on which will also influence the pay structure of the playing body and coaches as well,” he said.
"Such acts will help keep our best talents in the league. We have got to discipline everybody – the administrators of the club, the Ghana Football Association [GFA] and especially referees," he added.
Sharks will end their maiden camp in the league at home to dethroned champions, Wa All Stars, on October 22 at the Nduom Sports Stadium.
