Hearts of Oak, Asante Kotoko don't have quality to attract fans - Dr Nyaho Tamakloe

Dr Nyaho Nyaho Tamakloe has said Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko lack the quality to attract the numbers to the stadia.

Both clubs have witnessed poor attendance in the ongoing 2022/23 Ghana Premier League.

However, Dr Tamakloe speaking in an interview revealed that one of the reasons why fans are failing to attend games is because of the low quality of players in the league.

He cited the recent President Cup game between Hearts and Kotoko as an example where fans failed to show up even when it was a free gate for spectators.

"The sort of footballers we have now are not classy. This worries a lot of spectators. If you look at the match we played the last time between Hearts of Oak and Kotoko, it was a big match but you saw what happened at the stadium even when the gates were opened freely. People failed to turn up," the Hearts of Oak board member told Asempa FM.

He added that the players of Hearts of Oak and Kotoko lack the quality to bring spectators to the stadium.

"The present generation of players shouldn't think they know it all. None of them can come to the standard of people like Baba Yara or Mfum or even Asamoah Gyan.

"As of now, being frank with you neither Hearts of Oak or Kotoko can boast of quality players," he added.
