Nima Dreams: ‘Inadequate pitches causing decline in football talents’ – Mohammed Polo – MyJoyOnline.com

Former Black Stars attacker, Mohammed Polo, has attributed Nima’s slow production of football talents to the inadequate pitches in the community.

The ‘Zongo’ area has struggled to boast of players of his ilk since his retirement in the early 90s and it has become a major concern with many talents abound.

Recently though, Ajax star, Mohammed Kudus, Majeed Ashimeru of Anderlecht and Abdul Manaf Nurudeen, who also plies his trade in Belgium for Eupen, are making headway in Europe but they needed Academies – Right to Dream, WAFA, Aspire Academy respectively, to smoothen their path to the top.

A town with a population of over 600,000 people has just two football pitches – Kanda Cluster of Schools Park and the Kawokudi Park – and both are under massive pressure with a plethora of teams and schools training on it for exercise or competitions and Polo, a Ghana legend born and bred in Nima, is worried.

“The moment the field started diminishing. They were building houses and whatever it is so the interest of football dropped and these young ones who are supposed to have that sort of field to enjoy have no place to go. It is very difficult.” Polo said.

This angle is a highlight in the upcoming Joy News/Joy Sports documentary, ‘Nima Dreams.’
