Former Black Stars striker Tony Yeboah has expressed that the Ghana Premier League is unattractive

Tony Yeboah played for Corners Stones and Okwawu United and won the golden boot of the Ghanaian top-flight league on two occasions.

Yeboah, 50 has indicated that the Ghana league lacks the excitement it used to generate in the past and has therefore attributed it to the top officials of the Ghana Football Association.

"I've not been watching the Ghana Premier League either from the stadium or on television. How can I watch the Ghana Premier League when the English Premier league is ongoing?" Yeboah told Otec FM.

"It's not only me who don't watch the league. Many Ghanaians don't go to the stadiums and prefer watching different league due to its unattractive nature.

"A white man will find time to look for solutions but not here. We need leaders who can sit down and reason why Ghanaians are not patronising the league. It is not difficult, but the leaders currently in charge don't want to accept that their product has collapsed or is in the process of collapsing," he said.

He added: "Meanwhile, many Ghanaians know that things are not working. Look at what went on last season; unfair officiating from referees, no punishments to those who went against the rules. How can the Ghana FA president even tell referees to accept bribes when tempted but officiate fairly? This is unbelievable and with this and many more how can the league be attractive?"

He played for Frankfort and Hamburg in the Bundesliga and emerged as the first African to win the German top-flight top scorer.
