Ashantigold new signing Kennedy Ashia has called on Ghanaians particularly sports journalists to stop tagging experienced footballers as ‘lame duck’
Some Ghanaian football advocates and journalists describe players who are in their late 20’s as old and waste, and that cannot add value to the game anymore.

” It’s very sad when sports journalists always tag experienced players as done and dusted”
