Former Asante Kotoko defender, Joseph Hendricks has hit out at current players in the local league as he notes that they do not show any sign of seriousness.
According to the retired footballer, players during his active days were better and serious than what is seen in the various divisions nowadays.
“All the footballers during our days are better and serious than most current footballers because during our time we pass through all the ranks; colts to the second division, first division to premier division and during our time a player can stay in one team to be consistent in form for about five-six seven years before we think and travel to abroad to play”, Joseph Hendricks said in an interview with Hot FM on Thursday morning.
He continued, “But current footballers when they play just a season they want to travel abroad and always they fail trials and that means they are not up to the tasks. Current footballers cannot compare their selves to us we are far better than the current footballers".
With his point made, Joseph Hendricks has advised players in the local league to take the profession seriously to help develop football in the country.
“Current footballers have to be serious and wake up and train hard and lift up their games to pull supporters to the stadium because we lack quality players in the local league, the former Black Stars defender concluded.
