Former Ghana youth star, Awudu Issaka has encouraged the current crop of Black Stars players to cultivate the habit of saving to guarantee a better future after their career.
Awudu Issaka, who is revered for his exploits at the U-17 level cited the example of Rev. Osei Kofi and others who did a lot for the nation during their playing days but were ignored after retirement.
“You see some people say, sacrifice for Ghana and we did but we are not remembered by the country. You, our legends like Rev.Osei Kofi and his teammates are old but the country does not honour and even the children don’t know them and that is a problem.”
“For me, I will advise any child playing for the national team that even if he is paid $100K he should accept it but he should save it so that if he is being ignored by the country in the future he can use that money.”
