Kwasi Boadi, popularly known in showbiz as Akrobeto, has blamed Ghanaian sports journalists for being responsible for the decline of Ghana football, ABC News can report.

Speaking on Accra-based Peace FM, the host of UTV’s Real News indicated that almost all sports journalists across the country devote substantial time on their various sports shows to discuss foreign matches.

Akrobeto noted that these journalists discuss and promote foreign-based leagues to the detriment of Ghana’s domestic football, a situation he avers saddens his heart.

The Kumawood actor indicated that even if Ghana’s league is below standard and unattractive, we can throw our support to Ghana’s juvenile football in order to upgrade it to meet international standards.

He noted that he cannot fathom why Ghanaian journalists devote ample time to discuss and promote foreign leagues, meanwhile, none of the huge proceeds generated from those foreign matches are remitted to Ghana.

“I blame you journalists. This matter really saddens my heart. Journalists use almost all their time to talk about Ronaldo and other foreign players for more than one hour, however, these people do not pay for the airtime yet you dedicate it for them. How is this going to help us? Even if our national league is defective, we can support the colts football to help develop them.”

He continued that “but every Ghanaian journalist is always talking about foreign leagues meanwhile these people do not remit money to Ghana but we are killing our own. It saddens me when its 9 am in Ghana, all sports journalists throughout the country will be discussing foreign leagues on all radio stations. We all always raising them. Even you Dan. When you come to my house, you will never see me tuning my TV to watch the foreign matches, I will never watch it. But if it’s about Ghana, I will go to the stadium to watch.”
