Too much sex killing Ghanaian players, says coach

Former Black Stars player and coach, Malik Jabir believes that Ghana’s club players are not doing well because beautiful Ghanaian girls have made them weaker.

Malik who coached the Black Stars in 2003 said in a national radio that Ghana players indulge in too much sex rather than train and improve their strength and skills.

“They are having too much sex, which is destroying the energy levels of the current national football,” he said.

“In Ghana there are very beautiful women who do not want to leave them alone. However, we must know the difference between sex and football. There is time for everything. It’s not possible to reach the top if both are mixed.”

“A lot of today’s players cannot play 90 minutes because they get tired so easily.

The 71-year-old who played for the Black Stars in the 1968 and 1972 Olympics is currently a technical adviser for Asante Kotoko, a professional club in the Ghana Premier League, and was speaking mainly about the level of the country’s top local league.
