‘Stop Calling Us Old Players’ – Hans Kwoffie

Former Ghana Premier League golden boot winner Hans Kwoffie has entreated the public to desist from tagging experienced players as old.

It is commonplace to hear experienced players who return to the country’s top-flight been tagged as ‘old’.

The tag which has grown unpopular among players which fall within that category has seen a sizeable amount of them dreading to return to the Premier League for fear of being branded as old.

A number of the ‘old’ players have already registered their displeasure with the tag and ex-Ashgold and Medeama attacker Hans Koffie has added his voice to the niggling issue.

“The enjoyment of the game is not up to expectations because not all clubs have those players who can entertain fans.

“People should stop calling as old players and pave way for us to excel in the Ghana league.” Kwoffie told Kumasi-based radio station OTEC FM.

“We have many players who are not that old but because they started their careers earlier, people tag them as old players.

“Those called old players perform really well in the Sunday’s and Monday’s special” he continued.

“I played with players who were 41 years in the Tanzania League but in Ghana people start calling you old player when you are 33.”

This current season has seen a number of former stars return to clubs.

Hans Kwofie won the Golden Boot in the 2016/17 season after scoring 17 times for AshGold.
