Kotoko and Hearts of Oak should dominate GPL, says Emmanuel Osei Kuffour


Former Asante Kotoko and Hearts of Oak star Emmanuel Osei Kuffour has expressed his disappointment over the current dominance of teams like Aduana Stars and Berekum Chelsea in the Ghana Premier League (GPL).

In an interview with Onua Sports, Kuffour, who the league with both clubs, said Kotoko and Hearts of Oak, as the traditional powerhouses of Ghanaian football, should be the clubs challenging for the league title.

Kuffour emphasised the significance of these two iconic clubs in representing the country in major African competitions, highlighting the fact that they have a rich history and a strong fan base.

During his playing days, Kuffour recalled that the best players in the country would often join Kotoko and Hearts of Oak, creating fierce competition within the teams. However, he lamented the decline in the ability of these clubs to attract top talent in recent times.

“During our time, all the best players in the country were always joining us, but it’s different now,” Kuffour explained. “Hearts and Kotoko are not attracting the best of players anymore, and it is a major worry. Their management should sit up and restructure their recruitment plans well.”
