1978 AFCON winner Mohammed Polo has charged the Black Galaxies to salvage the image of the Ghana Premier League at the 2023 Championship for African Nations (CHAN) tournament in Algeria.
A chunk of Ghanaian football fanatics has raised concerns about the decline of the domestic top-flight in recent times.
In an interview with Koforidua-based Bryt FM, the former Hearts of Oak star implored the Black Galaxies to use the CHAN tournament as a platform to make a strong case about the Ghana Premier League.
“It is an opportunity for the Black Galaxies to showcase our league to the continent. The best players have been selected for the tournament, so we want to see the quality of our league, these players should be representing us at the AFCON and World Cup in the future”
“It is the time for the Black Galaxies to show the standard of our football in Africa. They should make sure we have something to talk about with regards to the quality of our football”
“We are looking up to them at this tournament, well, it didn’t go on well in our first game but it doesn’t mean they are out. They still have the opportunity and I think they have to salvage the face of our football (Ghana Premier League)”
