Anyone who says Ghana football isn’t a mess isn’t speaking the truth- Agyemang-Badu

Former Black Stars player Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu believes Ghana football is in a bad state and anyone who says otherwise isn’t speaking the truth.

He said this during his appearance on United Showbiz alongside former Black Stars teammates John Paintsil and Samuel Inkoom.

In his submission, John Paintsil chided Ghana Premier League clubs for not doing enough to help improve the state of the Ghanaian league. (Click highlighted text to read full story)

The former Udinese and Kumasi Asante Kotoko Sporting Club player also threw his weight behind the SaveGhanaFootball Demonstration’s petition to change Ghana football for the better.

The demonstration came on the back of Ghana’s second elimination from the 2021 and 2023 AFCON editions in the first round respectively.

“It’s been 15 years since we won the FIFA Under 20 World Cup now where is your Under 20 team? So when someone goes on a demonstration, I’m not attacking somebody, they’ve brought you 15 items to improve football, what is wrong about this? Agyemang-Badu questioned and added

“Your football is in a mess. Anyone who says otherwise isn’t speaking the truth. Apart from the Black Queens, the national football teams are underperforming so what should we do, we have to go back to the basics.”
