Accra Great Olympics marksman Abel Manomey has lamented on the the plight of locally based players, which has left them in a depleted state of mind and has affected
their overall performance on the field.
According to the striker, who scored five goals in the just ended league, the appalling state of Ghanaian players, makes it difficult for them to thrive in respective endeavours in life.
Excerpts in his latest series, dubbed the life of a local based player reads:
“Most players who play in the Ghana Premier league are tagged to be disrespectful and rude, due to how they have handled issues confronting them.
“These are due to psychological issues they go through in their daily lives and some of these are finances, family problems, lack of playing time etc.
“It affects their performances on the pitch and training especially when they work under expatriate coaches who has not gotten any first hand information of the hustles and life of a local based player in Ghana.
“Coaches want 110 percent of commitment from these players so they can excel and achieve their objectives at the end of the league season.
“But how can this be achieved, if the local based player does not have the right mind to play that role? There have been litany of events that showed clashes between local based players and these expatriate coaches because both sides felt disrespected because of the others inaction towards them.”
