Former Kumasi Asante Kotoko captain, Yussif Alhassan Chibsah has called on the Ghana Football Association (GFA) to make plans to introduce doping tests in the local leagues to curb the use of banned substances by players.

In the past few weeks, players in the country from colts level to the Premier League level have been accused of engaging in drug use especially the smoking of marijuana (weed).

According to veteran coach J.E Sarpong, 60% of players on the local scene smoke weed. To back his estimation, the former Asante Kotoko coach opened up on how he at a point in his career had to buy the marijuana for his players to ensure they won a cup final game.

Speaking on Accra-based Angel FM, Yussif Chibsah who is a leading member of the PFAG has called for the introduction of random doping tests by the GFA Medical Team.

“It will be a step in the right direction for the FA medical team to start with doping tests like it is done in other leagues”, the ex-Black Stars midfielder said.

Meanwhile, some of the Ghanaian players have been irritated by the allegations from Coach J.E Sarpong with Aduana Stars striker Yahaya Mohammed calling him out to retract the 60% statement.
