Communications Director of the Ghana football Association, Henry Asante Twum has indicated that there is the need to bridge the gap between football and education in the country.
According to him, over the years students from various universities across Ghana have been keen in the development of the game and hence there is the need for both associations to bridge the gap between the education and football.
“There should not be any gap between the education sector and the football industry. Some former students have contributed immensely to the development of football in the country.”
He also stated that, the Ghana football association is committed and looking forward to introduce the universities football league in the coming days to motivate these young lads interested in the sporting discipline.
“The FA is committed in the development of football in the universities, we will possibly introduce the universities football league though it comes with challenges but we will see about that”
