Former Black Stars midfielder, Godwin Attram, has defended Ghana’s sports minister, Nii Lante Vanderpuye, insisting that the Ghana Premier League is not attractive.

The minister in an interview with Accra based Asempa FM last week said that the poor nature of the competition has led to an inability to gain corporate sponsorship.

Mr Vanderpuye’s comments were not taken lightly by the Professional League Board and the FA, who hit back, even with the FA boss equating Vanderpuye to a “serial caller” with no facts, even attacking his person, instead of disproving the minister’s claim.

Speaking to Sports Xtra, recently, Attram said, “Our league is really down, if one has to speak the truth. The Minister said that last week the league is unattractive and you had people from the FA coming out to speak against it.

“There are a lot of issues confronting our league which I think are not being handled well. Issues with poor officiating, bribery, among others.

A player is demoralized even before travelling for a game because he fears officiating will go against his team. So, I really think our league is unattractive.”

Godwin Attram is the head coach of Division One side, Accra Great Olympics.
