In the last few days, Welbeck Abra-Appiah has been openly supporting Kwesi Nyantakyi to be the next FA president due what he says has been stellar achievements.
The Premier League Board boss may be interested to know that once again, his league’s teams are making no impact on the international scene and are fast losing their reputation.
No club from Ghana was named in the list of Africa’s top 30, as published the latest ranking by the Confederation of African Football (CAF).
This list is based on performances in CAF organised continental tournaments and with no club from the west African nation going beyond the preliminary rounds in CAF Champions League or Confed Cup since 2011, it is no shock.
Berekum Chelsea got to the group stage at the time.
Al Ahly of Egypt, perhaps predictably, are leading the rankings by more than 600 points from second placed Esperance du Tunis. TP Mazembe complete the top 3.
Tunisia have more than anyone in the top 30 – they have five – followed by Morocco’s four.
A total of 14 countries have clubs in the listm with Nigeria and Egypt with three apiece.
