Club owners in the Upper West region have been urged to prioritise the welfare of their players when taking decisions that affect them.
The call was made by coach Abdul-Aziz John Kandumah, gaffer of Wa Division I club – Wa Suntaa SC – on Thursday, July 7, 2022, on Radio Waa’s Sports show.
According to him, taking decisions that affect players without thinking about their future tends to affect their careers in the long run.
He also called on team owners to desist from denying other teams their players, especially Division I teams, which he said does not help in the development of the amateur players in the region.
The enterprising young coach lamented the wrong way of poaching players from some team owners which heclaims breeds enmity among club owners.
Prescribing the right way of doing it, he advised that club owner who wants a player from another club must first seek permission from that club before talking to the player for negotiation to avoid speculations.
He believes owners of clubs must learn to soften their stands to come to compromise in the transfer of players in order to safeguard the future of the players who he stated are amateurs.
