Former Ghana Football Association chairman, Dr. Nyaho Tamakloe says Ghana presented old men at the 2022 CAF Africa Nations Championship in Algeria.
According to him, the Black Galaxies team failed to glitter at the CHAN tournament because most of the players were above the age of 35-years.
Speaking on Asempa FM, Dr Nyaho-Tamakloe claimed the players of the Black Galaxies were old and could not match the pace and stamina of their opponents.
“I can say that our biggest problem is age cheating. We have been doing it for years and we are now seeing the effect. Modern football is about speed and stamina and the younger ones are those who can do that,” he said.
“75 percent of our players are definitely 35 years plus. I’m telling you and we can verify that using the MRI scan. They look even old if you look at them in the face.”
“Look at the various countries who participated in the tournament, even in our game against Niger we looked older than them and it showed in the performance. Let’s look at this age of cheating carefully and put a stop to it.”
