Deputy Coach of Ghana Premier League side Ashanti Gold , Thomas Duah strongly believes that signing of foreign players by local clubs improves the quality and attractiveness of the league.

His comments comes after the Miners secured the signature of Burkinabe goalkeeper Aboabacar Sawadogo ahead of the upcoming season.

Speaking on Kumasi based radio station Light FM Mr Duah stated that,

“Foreign players bring respect to our league and it makes the league attractive. In the previous years, AshGold had the record of signing one foreigner each year so this is not new to our club,” he said.

The coach also touched on the transfer of the club insisting he is happy with transfers and believed the players can make history for club in the upcoming CAF confederation tournament.

“We are okay with the squad and we are very sure that this team can move the club to a greater height (from grace to grace). So we are appealing to the supporters to rally behind the club in the upcoming season”.
