Ghana Premier League standard has dropped - Fatau Dauda

Black Stars shot-stopper Fatau Dauda believes the standard of the Ghana Premier League has dropped because clubs are unable to retain the best players, hence they have to sell them.

The 35-year-old, who currently plays for Legon Cities in the topflight admits the gap is huge as compared to the previous generation.

In an interview with Asempa FM, he said, "I remember in the early 2000s our league was very competitive. Every league centre was packed and footballers sold good football."

"But it’s generational. This generation, the players do not last long in the league because of money. A player plays for one or two seasons and he leaves because for a country where he will be paid well."

He continued, "However, the previous generation, players could stay in the league for more than five years. You could mention first eleven of either Asante Kotoko, Hearts of Oak or Ashanti Gold off the head. The gap is huge."
