CAF Champions League and Confederation Cup winner, Dan Quaye has entreat the media houses and personnels in Ghana to hype ‘old’ players who choose to return to play in the Ghana Premier League.
He urged the journalists not to rain insults on the aged players who decide to join the domestic league.
His comments comes after Inter Milan and AC Milan midfielder, Sulley Ali Muntari joined 2020-21 Ghana Premier League Champions, Accra Hearts of Oak SC.
According to him, players of Sulley’s calibre attracts supporters to the stadium and must be encouraged rather than insulting them.
“Sulley’s return to the Ghana Premier League excites me because it will draw more supporters to the stadium. I watched him play last Sunday and I realised he still has more to offer,” Dan Quaye told Bryt FM.
“I will entreat the media to hype such players rather than raining insults. Sulley cannot play like his heydays, but at least we should be proud of him. There are a lot of players who want to return to the league but they are reluctant to come because of insults from the media and supporters.
“The inclusion of experienced players in the league makes it more attractive, in 2014, me, Godwin Attram and Richard Kingsgon played for Olympics, and it yielded results, supporters were coming to the stadium in their numbers.
“I’m praying other players who feel they can still play and emulate Muntari return home.”
