Stay away from weed and enhancement drugs – Ghanaian footballers charged

Published on: 11 August 2023

Former Ghana international, Mohammed Dramani Salilu has called on footballers in the domestic topflight to stay away from performance-enhancement drugs.

Multiple reports have emerged that some players do engage in drugs before and after games.

However, Kalilu noted that contrary to what some footballers think, using drugs doesn’t prolong one’s career.

"If you are an upcoming player and anyone tells you weed and body enhancement drugs will help your football career, it's a lie. It doesn't add anything to your football skills,” he said, as quoted by Ghanaweb.

Meanwhile, the 2023/24 Ghana Premier League campaign is set to get underway later in September across the various venues.

All the 18 clubs in the Premier League have officially started pre-season and gearing for the upcoming 2023/24 Ghana Premier League season.
