Ghana football far advance than Guinea – Ameenu Shardow asserts

Black Stars Team Manager, Mohamed Ameenu Shardow, has rated Ghana Football as far as better than Guinean football.

He argues that assertion of the many football pundits and fans against the backdrop that football in the country is beneath most neighboring countries on the continent is entirely not the case.

Over the years, many have attributed Ghana’s poor run in Africa inter-club competitions to the decline in the quality of domestic league, leading to CAF to reduce its slot from two teams each for both the CAF champions League and Confederation Cup.

But, Ameenu Shadow believes despite the development, Ghana football still remain relevant over most African countries particularly Guinea who has all of its four slots in both club competitions.

“Per the development of football in Ghana, and based on what I saw in Guinea during the first leg, I can state emphatically that we are ahead of them.

Though, they have four slots in CAF inter-club competitions and have only two, we are ahead of them…. but, this is because they perform well in Africa with huge investments,” he admitted.

Mr. Ameenu who doubles as the Chief Executive Officer of Ghana Premier League side Dreams FC argues that in spite of his observation the thin line between football development in Ghana and Guinea is “money.”

He was however of the believe that with right structures being put in place coupled with huge investment into our game, Ghana football will regain its lost glory in club competitions on the continent.

He made this pronouncement in an interview with Onua TV on Friday, August 25, 2023, which was keenly monitored by Getsportsgh.com

He was speaking about the competitiveness of competition Guinean side Milo FC gave Dreams FC in the sides first-leg CAF Confederation Cup prelims played in Conakry last weekend.

With the first-leg tie ended 1-1, the Ghanaian FA Cup champions will go boot for boot against Milo FC on Sunday, August 27, at the Accra Sports Stadium for the second leg.
