Black Stars head coach, James Kwesi Appiah has expressed satisfaction with the level of competitiveness and play in the 2016/17 Ghana Premier League.
The former Al Khartoum trainer has been present at a handful of premier league games since he arrived in the country weeks ago after the Ghana Football Association (GFA) confirmed his second stint with the senior national team.
Eight teams are closely vying for the coveted trophy while five teams are also battling for survival with the first round of the season set to end on 14 – 15 May.
Speaking exclusively to Class Sports, Kwesi Appiah said he is surprised with the competitive nature of the league this season.
“I have had the opportunity to watch five games and I’m actually impressed. Some of the players are very good…some have picked up really well and I’m impressed”, he said.
Reacting to whether he would select any player from the league into the national team, he said: “It is not up to me alone but my whole technical team to have a look at more teams in the premier league as I don’t believe in watching a team and concluding that a team or a player is good. But I want to give opportunity to all.”
Appiah is expected to name his first squad ahead of the nation’s friendly match against the United State of America in June.
