“We Need a Good Balance in Black Stars Player Selection” - Al Ahli Midfielder

Dubai based Ghanaian midfielder, Abdul Karimu has advocated for the revival of juvenile football to help unearth talents for the premier league clubs and the various national teams.

Ghanaian clubs have struggled in continental football with the junior and youth national teams equally facing challenges lately. Abdul Karimu spoke to Adamu Muftawu of Gold TalkSport on Radio Gold.

“You don’t see the qualities in our leagues now because the colts football isn’t effective. “But when the colts league was effective, you could see from our senior players like those who were in the Black Stars before, you could see the difference.

“But now it’s like everybody comes from Europe to play in the national team but those days it was different. “Those days it was different, you could have a lot of local players in the Black Stars because there was colts football. “It brought out a lot of qualities but now we don’t see it but I see that they are trying to bring it back and I think it is a good thing,” Abdul Karimu told Gold TalkSport. Karimu, who plays for Al Ahli Dubai Club has called for a balance in the player selection process for the senior national team.

He believes a blend of local and foreign based players would help the Black Stars a great deal. “There should be a balance in everything you know. In the long run it would affect us but there should be a balance. “But now I can see they are trying to blend in but they should give the local boys the opportunity because other countries are doing it so why not [Ghana].” Abdul Karimu added.
