It is sometimes devasting that football players who dedicated their time and energy to play for the senior soccer team, Black Stars goes through neglections at the end of their career. Sometimes it baffles my mind to ask that, don't we as a country have any pension arrangement for these individuals who dedicated their lives to the country?
Well, some Ghanaians will ask, what did they use the money they had whiles playing the Black Stars and Club for? Some players will tell you that they got knockdown by illness along the way which resulted in their downfall. The picture below shows Ex-Black Star and Heart of Oaks striker, Olabode Williams.
He was a very active player in the early and late 90's. He gave his all to the national soccer team at the time of a genuine desire to die for his country. Don't let his trimmed beard and curly hair deceive you. According to Crime Check Foundation, he has now become a pauper. As to what made him pauper, they did give information about that.
If we continue to treat our heroes this way, we only help to flower the entrenched perception that Ghana is not worth dying for. Looking at the photo, Crime Check Foundation has got to his aid with some amount of money. Our heroes deserve better.
