A former Ghana Football Association [GFA] chairman, Dr Nyaho Nyaho-Tamakloe has opined that age-cheating is one of the main problems facing Ghana’s senior national team, the Black Stars.
The Hearts of Oak's board member comment emerges after Ghana’s early exit from the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations [AFCON] in Cameroon.
The Black Stars failed to win a single group game and finished Group C at the bottom with just a point.
Speaking in an interview with Citi Sports, the veteran football administrator said, the Ghana Football Association must do well to address the situation.
“Me personally, I think our main problem at the moment is age cheating," he said.
“Most of our players are overaged, a player who is 30 plus definitely is burnt out.
“If you watch the tournament carefully, those who have relatively younger than we do.
“To me, that is what the GFA should watch carefully at, if you want a boy that is 15, let him be 15, don’t tell us he is 18," he added.
The Black Stars will be hoping to make amends when they take on Nigeria in the 2022 Fifa World Cup playoff in March.
