For­mer Ghana coach says sex bad for play­ers

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport -

A FOR­MER Ghana coach has in­sisted that the coun­try’s football is go­ing nowhere be­cause the play­ers are hav­ing “too much sex”.

Ma­lik Jabir, who rep­re­sented the Black Stars at the 1968 and 1972 Olympic Games and coached Ghana in 2003, be­lieves Ghana­ian stars should fo­cus more on football than sex.

“A lot of to­day’s play­ers can­not play 90 min­utes be­cause they get tired so eas­ily,” he said, as quoted by AS.

“And you know why? Be­cause they don’t sleep enough and don’t train enough and they en­gage in too much sex.

“There are beau­ti­ful young girls in Ghana and they won’t leave them alone. There is time for sex and time for football, but if you mix the two, you will never reach the top.”

The 71-year-old is cur­rently a tech­ni­cal ad­vi­sor 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.

The Black Stars’ next game is a 2018 Fifa World Cup qual­i­fier against Uganda to­mor­row. — Soc­cer Lad­uma
