The head coach of the Ghana national football team, the Black Stars, Chris Hughton, has called on all Ghanaians to take an interest in the Ghana Premier League. Hughton has been a fan of the competition, attending various matches across the country’s different regions, and he now urges all Ghanaians to do the same.

The 64-year-old coach, who assumed his role in March this year, initially promised to watch the local games to scout top-performing players. However, he has now urged all Ghanaians to support the Ghana Premier League as well.

In a video shared by the various social media handles of the Ghana Premier League, Hughton said, “I urge everybody to follow the betPawa Premier League and watch as many games as possible as I will do.”

Meanwhile, former Ghana international footballer Sam Johnson has advised Hughton to keep tabs on competitions in the lower tier as well to spot equally talented footballers for the Black Stars. Johnson believes that the talent is not only in Accra or Kumasi but also in smaller cities and towns across the country.

Hughton began his reign with an unbeaten start in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers, with a win and a draw against Angola. Ghana now leads Group E in the qualifiers with eight points and is one win away from qualifying for the event, which will be hosted in Ivory Coast next year.

It is crucial for Ghanaians to support the Ghana Premier League, as the competition serves as a breeding ground for future Black Stars players. The league’s success is the success of the country’s football as a whole, and we should all rally behind it.
