Popular Ghanaian coach J E Sarpong has rallied Ghanaians to take George Afriyie’s One Player One Ball policy at grassroots level seriously.
The experienced trainer who discovered the legendary Asamoah Gyan believes it is the way to go in terms of grassroots development.
George Afriyie, a leading candidate for the GFA Presidential elections, demonstrated his commitment to grassroots football by delivering his promise of One Player One Ball to the Brong Ahafo regional U15 Teams and Women’s teams Ampem Darkoaa Ladies and Prisons Ladies.
And, J E Sarpong recounts his experience on the policy which he believes is the way to go.
“This is a very good policy that we must all take seriously because I remember at Feyenoord Sam Ardey implemented that policy and it helped very well. Every player used to sleep with the ball and was only allowed to watch football on TV,” he said Asempa FM.
“This invariably builds and rises the interest young children have in the ball,” he added.
George Afriyie has pledged to introduce One Player One Ball at Colts Premier League level to revive the dying interest in football in Ghana.
