Former Hearts of Oak midfielder, Sulley Muntari, has advised management in Ghana football to focus on the youth level and develop them so the country benefits.
Some of Ghana’s greatest players passed through the colts system and made their name on the international stage.
Sulley was one of them and believes attention should be paid to the young ones again as there is a lot of talent in Ghana.
“There is talent that we have to give them chance to play and we have to also take good care of them for that they play. You can’t travel with kids and leave them 7, 8, 9 hours and expect them to play football. You don’t treat them the way you don’t want to be treated I think if we want a very good future for these kids 2nd division, first division, colts, premiership here we need to focus on them,” he said on Dan Kweku Yeboah TV on Youtube.
“If not you continue to compare you want Essien, you want Stephen, you want Derek Boateng, you want other players you won’t get it because at that time that those players were picking up there were foundation for them. So you just don’t get up and say you want this and that it won’t work.”
Muntari played for the Black Stars in 2006, 2010 and 2014 World Cups.
