Godwin Attram: Great Olympics returnee advises fans to stop insulting veterans

Godwin Attram wants fans to desist from ‘insulting’ veteran footballers who have returned to the Ghana Premier League.

The 34-year-old has rejoined his former club Great Olympics after 15 years of playing abroad.

In Ghana, ex-internationals have ruled out returning to the Ghana top-flight either to relaunch their careers or retire due to verbal abuses and insults from fans.

They are tagged old and finished by the fans and that has been a huge disincentive.

“I am pleading with the fans to accept the professional players whenever they are about to retire or even if they are coming to re-launch their careers,” Attram told Joy Sports.

“Over the years, the fans have been bullying them and saying that ‘you are old’ and ‘you cannot play’. I am asking them to stop that because football is here in Ghana.”

Attram have featured for clubs in Holland, Tunisia, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Oman.
