President of the Sports Writers Association of Ghana (SWAG) Kwabena Yeboah has pleaded with Ghanaians not to judge the quality of the home based players by the just ended G6 tournament.
The seasoned journalist admitted to the indifferent form of some of the players who featured in the offseason tourney but was quick to cite the uncertain training schedule as a binding factor.
Reigning FCPPL champions Ashgold and FA Cup holders Medeama SC endured torrid times in the inaugural edition of the tournament as they crashed out without winning any match.
The SWAG president urged the football family not to descend on the players just by using the G6 as a barometer.
Known as “The Writer” in the football circles, Kwabena Yeboah highlighted on the individual brilliance of some of the players as the positives to feast on.
He cited uncertain training regime as the cause of the poor form from these players during the four-day soccer festival.
“Some of the players were absolutely brilliant but a few were a bit rusty. Collectively a number of the teams didn’t do that well. I am not here to be critical of those teams since they did not know when the season was going to start I guess the coaches themselves are confused as to how to prepare their teams.” The SWAG Boss revealed
The veteran sports journalist then urged the football family not to be deceived by the form of the players during the just ended G6 gathering.
“It is difficult to use the G6 to assess most of the teams and I do hope that once the FA announces a firm date for the commencement of the league most of the teams will put their acts together,” He concluded.
Kumasi Asante Kotoko stormed to the G6 title with their impressive performances after a heavy win in the opening fixture against Berekum Chelsea at the Essipong stadium.
