  • In the Ghana Premier league, Gideon Baah and Jackson Owusu suffered the same injury, breaking their tibia and fibula bone in 2010 and 2016 respectively, as they featured for Asante Kotoko. After undergoing a successful surgery, they are now playing football again, stronger than ever before and their careers are blossoming.

    I was woken up by a tap on my shoulder from the ward nurse at 7:10am and she told me to get ready within the next two hours for my surgery. Earlier that morning, my mother had come to help me bath and prayed as well, which was a routine we went through for the nine days I stayed at the 37 Military Hospital. Her last words before she left me, was to take heart and know that God had already finished my operation.

  • If you know the God you serve, do not be anxious for anything. If God used the leg with a metal support to show his Glory with me, he will use your adversities to show his Glory with you.

    The Bible assures us often not to be anxious of anything but with prayers and supplications to God all our worries will be answered.

  • My senior brother and colleague at Accra Great Olympics Football Club, Edward Afum, told me he invited me to come and see things for myself about the other side of life which he had experienced whiles he was a professional ...

    There was so much euphoria as hundreds of football fans gathered at the Tema Community 8 Number 2 School Park to watch Professionals from Tema play against Professionals from Accra.

  • For the opportunity to play my first Premier League match, bringing out the best in me, challenging me to higher heights, reminding me every day that humility, selflessness, and hard work is what I need to fight the storms of life, I am ever grateful.

    I watched Godwin Attram when he featured for the Black stars, wearing the number 12 jersey, as he was part of the team that contributed to Ghana's maiden appearance in the 2006 World Cup. He played more of an attacking midfielder, confident in appearance and had good technique on the ball. This didn't surprise because his calibre and style of play made him captain of the Black Starlet in 1997.

  • I saw the joy on your face, when you received the WAFU Cup, which was won by our gallant local based footballers, when Ghana hosted the tournament in 2017.

    Dear President,

    On 6th June, 2018, Investigative Journalist Anas Aremayaw Anas, made public an exposé that showed several members of the Football Association and referees allegedly collecting bribes on tape. Your Government in your own wisdom, was compelled to suspend all activities of the Ghana Football Association, as well as barring its officials from undertaking any duty at the Football Association to enable further investigation into the matter.

  • Dear local based player,

    You have a good heart, and all that you think about is making a name for yourself, family, and your community at large. You put all seriousness in your training - waking up at odd times of the day to run miles on an empty stomach, having the faith that one day your star will shine, and that dream will become a reality.

  • Written By Abel Manomey - A football player who features in any of the sixteen clubs that plays in the Ghana premier league is termed as a local player in Ghana.

  • Written By Abel Manomey - Local based players are motivated intrinsically when they see their pictures on the back pages of various newspapers, where sports news are captioned, with previews to the weekend’s round of games for the Ghana premier league.

  • On 17th October, 2017, I applied for UK visa through the TLS contact with a reference: GWF045704078 so I could visit my senior brother in the United Kingdom for his graduation ceremony and also spend the Christmas holidays as well.

  • Written By Abel Manomey - From September 2015 to December 2016, I begun a journey that ended successfully with one of the fastest growing football clubs in Ghana. A club that I adore and love – Kotoku Royals. They developed me into a better player.

  • They have done well so far. They registered players last season for them to be insured but they need to be cushioned by the Ghana Football Association (GFA), and other corporate bodies since it is a huge financial burden on the PFAG. Also, in my case, Mr. Baffoe personally called and assured me of the association paying any debt incurred at the hospital resulting from my recent injury.

    Following his revealing series of articles on some of the difficulties that ‘local based’ soccer players endure in the Ghana Premier League in the course of their professional careers, we reached out to the lively forward for his perspective and experience in the League.

  • SA: I find your reference to the use of occultism/juju in the Ghana Premier League very intriguing. I do recall a video on Twitter of several Gt. Olympics players walking backwards into a stadium with hopes of picking up the 3 points as they sought to escape relegation towards the end of the 2017 season. Did that really happen or was that clip a prank?
