Black Stars legend Asamoah Gyan has noted that the CHAN competition is a unique one and shows the state of the local leagues in Africa.
Ghana participated in the tournament and made it to the quarterfinals where they were knocked out by Niger.
With the tournament reaching the final stage, Gyan stated how important a tournament like this is.
“This is a huge opportunity for players playing on the continent. The CHAN is a unique competition. It cannot be compared to other competitions,” Gyan told CAF in an interview.
“What I like about this tournament is that it shows the state of our local championships.
“This is our foundation. If we do not have good domestic championships, we will go nowhere. Thanks to everyone’s work, our leagues are competitive.
“Competitive leagues which give competitive inter-club tournaments including the CAF Champions League and the CAF Confederations Cup. There is no secret, everything starts from the local championships.”
Algeria will face Senegal in the final on Saturday.
