MoYS considers ways to support clubs in African tourneys

Deputy Minister of Youth and Sports, Puis Enam Hadzide, has said that government is considering ways to offer support to clubs that will represent the country in African competitions.

Aduana Stars, who won the just ended Ghana Premier League with 57 points under the auspices of Yusif Abubakar, will represent the country in next year’s CAF Champions League while Asante Kotoko, who humiliated their bitterest rivals, Hearts of Oak, by three goals to one to clinch the FA Cup trophy, will participate in the CAF Confederations Cup next year.

Over the years, Ghanaian clubs have struggled to make a huge impact in African competitions due to financial problems, but the Member of Parliament for Ketu North constituency said government is ready to offer support to clubs that will represent the country at these competitions.

Speaking to Class Sports, he said, “My view is that, these teams go to Africa not only to represent themselves, but also to represent the country so it is important that we discuss ways that government can possibly come in to offer assistance to these teams because at the end of the day, if everything goes on well, it is about Ghana.”
