Astute sports broadcaster and business administrator, Carl Tuffour has stated in clear terms that Ghana doesn’t have the right players for the novelty 3-5-2 formation that has been introduced by Coach Avram Grant.

Mr. Tuffour, an ace sports critic, alluded to the fact that to play such a system, you need lateral players who can defend solidly as well as surge forward, join the attack and deliver decent crosses but he doesn’t think we have such players in our team currently.

“I prefer the 3-5-2 system but I don’t think we have the right players for that system in our current team. To play this system effectively, you need lateral players who can defend well and join the attack where necessary to deliver decent crosses,” Mr. Tuffour said on Happy FM’s Anopa Bosuo Sports.

He also bemoaned the lack of attention to the other sporting disciplines, especially athletics, which he surmised was the reason for the downward trend of sports in the country and advised officials of the various sporting disciplines to be proactive in running their associations.
