Football News GFA aiming to halt mass player exodus - Prosper Harrison Addo

The General Secretary of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Prosper Harrison Addo, has disclosed that the Football Association is planning to end the mass player exodus.

Players who emerge as the best in the topflight leave the shores of the country in the middle of the season for greener pastures.

This has led to Ghanaian clubs' poor performance in CAF interclub competitions.

However, Harrison Addo said investing in the game is one way they can combat this issue and reduce the poor treatment players receive upon returning to the local game.

"Player exodus from Ghana is something we are looking at and want to find a solution for," he told Asempa FM.

"The production belt must produce more players than the number leaving Ghana for abroad.

"Investment in the game will also encourage players to stay in Ghana.

"The way we welcome players back when they have played abroad for two years and they are returning, people are pressuring them and saying they are finished."
