Kojo Bonsu, the former Chairman of the National Sports Authority, has called for a bigger focus to be placed on academies for the Black Stars.

In recent years, fans have questioned the continuity level of the senior national team, with little top talents featuring from the side.

In an interview on Joy FM, Kojo stated that there is the need to go to the grassroots.

“We have to take another look at our academies and grow them well so we can bring out players who can play to the highest level and get into the limelight. When these players are playing for the big clubs like Essien and Drogba did it brings attention to our national teams. You definitely will attract teams to come and play you. It also improves the commercial activity and helps make some good money for the team,” he said.

Ghana will face Ethiopia for the World Cup qualifiers on Friday.
