Former Accra Hearts of Oak midfielder, Lawrence Adjah Tetteh has blamed the poor performance of Ghanaian clubs in inter-club competitions in the continent on the fallen standards of player recruitment.
Speaking on the Sports Express Show, Adjah Tetteh said that the teams that represent the country do not get their player selections right for African competitions.
He believes that if the players get the necessary exposure in the local league, it will build their confidence when playing in CAF competitions.
“I think it’s about how our clubs recruit their players. We need players who have played in the club for some years for the necessary exposure before they can join the team in Africa,”
Adjah Tetteh’s comments come to explain the poor performance of Ghanaian clubs in CAF inter-club competitions.
This has led to a cut in slot for Ghana teams in CAF competitions from four to two
The last time a Ghanaian club won a laurel in Africa was in the 2004 African confederations cup which saw both Kumasi Asante Kotoko and Accra Hearts of Oak feature in the final.
Hearts of Oak were victors in the encounter through penalties.
