The President of Uncle T United, Isaac Tetteh, says the exodus of talented players from the country can be averted if players get better wages and working conditions.

Mr Tetteh, also known as T.T Brothers, however, stated in an interview with the Daily Graphic that clubs could only meet the needs of Ghanaian players through good sponsorship packages for the domestic league.

He therefore urged the Ghana Football Association (GFA) to restructure the league to make it more attractive to sponsors.
He was of the view that the current structure of the league might be the reason for the lack of sponsorship.

Investment

“When the league is well structured, it will also guarantee solid national teams," Mr Tetteh, a former board member of Accra Hearts of Oak, added.

"Football is all we have so the FA should do everything within its power to make it more attractive."

He said countries such as Jamaica had made a name through their investment in athletics, adding that Ghana could do same with football.

He also called for transparency at all levels as another means to woo potential sponsors to invest in Ghana Football.
The Ghana Premier League has run for some time now without a headline sponsor, putting a huge financial burden on the clubs.
