Former Asante Kotoko star John Bannerman is calling for the return of juvenile football to enhance the development of the game in Ghana.
Speaking to Lovin’ C on Silver TV and FM Omanbapa Morning Show , the legend highlighted on the importance of colts football and the role it played in his football career.
”Participating in colts football in Accra and Sekondi in a long way helped shape me up for a brilliant career at Kumasi Asante Kotoko”
”Most of Ghana’s legends started from juvenile football and so it is really important for us to take critical steps to bring it back” he said.
As a product of Ghana’s 1982 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) squad and a member of the 1983 CHAMPIONS LEAGUE winning squad of Asante Kotoko he encouraged the current players of the club to lift up their performance in order to win Championships and attract foreign contracts.
The witty right winger encouraged players in the domestic top-flight to maintain good performances to make major impact and earn a place in the national teams.
The President of the Ghana Football Association, Kurt Edwin Simon Okraku and his administration is constantly working around to bolster the management and revamp juvenile league across the country.
