Wafa assistant coach Moro blames poor Ghana Premier League season on player exodus

The Academy Boys' deputy coach believes they're struggling this season due to the sale of several top players

Wafa assistant coach Ibrahim Moro says they have had a slow start to the 2017-18 Ghana Premier League season following the sale of several first team players.

The Sogakope-based side parted ways with Emmanuel Boateng, Richmond Lamptey, Komlan Abegniedan, Caleb Amankwah, Gideon Waja and Majeed Ashimeru, and are yet to fill their places.

Wafa were without a win in their last five league games, picking only a point as a result and currently sit one place above the relegation zone.

“We are struggling this season because of several factors and the main factor is that most of our key players were sold to clubs outside the country and that is affecting us greatly, "Moro was quoted as saying by Ghanasoccernet.

"Some also left to join other clubs in the local league and honestly, those were the mature players. We are struggling but still playing good football and I believe things will improve gradually.

"We're not winning games and that obviously brings unhappiness in camp but we're doing our best to return to winning ways very soon," he added.

Wafa, who at this point last season were sitting third with 14 points, will travel to Cape Coast to face Ebusua Dwarfs by the weekend.
