Ghanaian midfielder Emmanuel Kumah complains of insufficient football facilities in Ghana

Published on: 02 March 2021

Ghanaian midfielder Emmanuel Kumah has stated that Ghana does not have sufficient facilities for young footballers so they seek greener pastures.

Kumah, 21, left Ghana at a young age and now plays for Polish side Wisla Krakow.

The situation has been a theme in Ghana football over the years with the brightest talents leaving for Europe.

"In Ghana, we have had many talented players with great potential for years. However, young footballers do not have sufficient facilities and equipment here," he told

"Therefore, everyone's dream is to travel to Europe as soon as possible, preferably right after their eighteenth birthday. Previously, this was not possible due to limitations. Unless one of your parents has a European passport, then things are a little easier. And I had to wait a while."
