Black Stars assistant coach Maxwell Konadu has commended Wa All Stars for emerging winners of the 2015/16 Ghana Premier League season.
According to him, the playing body and the entire management demonstrated championship credentials in their run to win the league title.
“We look at teams that are buying big names. Teams that are engaged in good recruitment policy and I think this is what happened. While others were buying big names – and I am not in any way imputing that it is wrong – they decided to go for these young guys that can sustain the travelling, shuttling up and down and all that and I think it has paid off,” he told Class Sports.
“Their boys are very young. They can travel for eight to nine hours and play a game the next day. The same thing cannot be said of players who may be 28 and upwards and doing the same number of hours and giving a club the output they want.”
The Wa-based side shocked football pundits by beating favourites Asante Kotoko and Accra Hearts of Oak to the league title. They will represent the country in CAF’s elite club competition, the CAF Champions League, next year.
