Tema Youth FC owner and life financier, Wilfred Osei Kweku Palmer, has shared that the country's football legends must be treated properly.

Legends in teh country have lamented over the years over unfulfilled promises after winning trophies for the country.

Some hold the belief that they have cursed the Black Stars which has led to the 38 years trophyless run.

According to the veteran football administrator, the country has failed to treat the legends of the game properly.

Osei Palmer opined that must be given the opportunities to come close to the team to inspire the players.

The disqualified GFA presidential aspirant also stressed the need to draw the nation’s soccer legends such as Abedi Pele, Tony Yeboah, Osei Kofi, Mohammed Polo and others closer to the senior national team in order to inspire the current generation of players to achieve the needed results.

“The way we treat our legends is also not proper. People get close to the team and some people don’t want to see their faces,” he told Graphic Sports in an interview.

Osei Palmer is currently challenging his Ghana Football Association (GFA) presidential disqualification at the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS).
