‘Ghana Football Is Designed To Fail’ – Former Sports Minister Nii Lante Vanderpuye



Former Sports Minister, Edwin Nii Lante Vanderpuye, has expressed his belief that Ghanaian football systeme has been designed in a way that eventually leads to failure.

The past Sports Minister points out the consistent underperformance of the national teams in recent football tournaments and the struggle to attract both fans and corporate sponsorship to the domestic league.
Nii Lante Vanderpuye, who served as the Minister for Sport from 2015 to 2017, suggests that the seeds of the current failures were rooted right from the very beginning.
He highlighted the Ghanaian football approach, where players are only brought together for tournaments, with the system in top English Premier League clubs.
In England, there are junior teams such as U21 and U19 teams that contest in a league, ensuring a consistent flow of young talent into the national setting.
