Accra, Sept. 22, GNA – Mr. Ali Horoya,
National Organiser of the National Chapters Committee (NCC) of Accra Hearts of
Oak, has called on the Ghana Football Association (GFA), to review the foreign
player quota in the status of the GFA.
Ghana Premier League Clubs are allowed to use
only three foreign players on the pitch at a time.
According to Mr. Horoya, the current system
which allows only three foreign players on the pitch each time is not good for
the development of the local league, adding that the quota system is affecting
competitive nature of the league.
He said clubs should be allowed to feature as
many foreign players as possible in the league adding that, it will make the
league more competitive and attractive to investors.
Mr. Horoya argued that, clubs like TP Mazembe
have been able to recruit the best players on the continent, hence their
dominance on the continent.
“We should open the gates for Ghanaian clubs
to recruit more players from neighbouring countries to make our league
competitive and attractive. This will also boost foreign investments in the
league,” He stated.
He said England has benefited immensely from
the open policy where clubs are free to recruit as many foreign players as
possible, making their league one of the most attractive, competitive and
lucrative in the world.
