Former TP Mazembe defender Richard Kissi Boateng has suggested that some football clubs in Ghana are not serious when it comes to the business side of the game.
The 31-year-old drew contrast with their counterparts on the continent, stressing on the need for club owners and administrators to invest in the sport.
“Some of the clubs in Ghana don’t mean business. Teams like TP Mazembe, Al Ahly etc spend a lot of money”.
“They [Ghanaian clubs] do not invest a lot in their clubs. TP Mazembe signed Kalaba for 4million euros, – Kissi Boateng told Ash FM.
He maintains was that Berekum Chelsea was the most attractive in the country during his earlier stint.
“When I was playing for Chelsea, the team was the most attractive team in Ghana.
“Chelsea could buy a car and give a beautiful home to make you feel comfortable to play football.
“During Chelsea’s African Champions league era we chartered a flight from Ghana to Cameroon but clubs in Ghana would have picked separate flights before reaching to the destination”.
Kissi Boateng further suggested that Ghanaian clubs don’t sign quality players.
“Also Ghanaian players don’t buy quality players. Nana Bonsu was retired in Ghana, meanwhile, when he went to Enugu Rangers he was their number 1 in Ghana.
“But his impact in Enugu Rangers is tremendous”, the defender concluded.
Richard Kissi Boateng rejoined Berekum Chelsea earlier this year after playing for Al-Ittihad, TP Mazembe, Liberty Professionals, and South Africa’s SuperSports United between 2010 and 2019.
