Former Hearts of Oak Chief Executive Vincent Sowah-Odotei claims standards in the Ghana Premier League have dropped.

Odotei was appalled at the performance of Hearts and Ebusua Dwarfs at the Accra Sports Stadium on Wednesday.

The match ended 0-0 and Odotei pointed out that the two sides put up a below par display.

“You look at the performance of a team lying 2nd on the league log? The standard of the Hearts- Dwarfs game was unacceptable and this has confirmed the poor standard of play in the league,” he told Metro FM in Kumasi.

The CAF Champions League elimination of Asante Kotoko, who have dominated the First Capital Plus the last two seasons, by Liberian side BYC gives credence to his assertion.

“Although I was surprised to see Kotoko kicked out by BYC of Liberia, the poor state of the league doesn’t make it a news anymore. The league has been deteriorating year after year," he added.

“I am urging the GFA to put in place a policy to remedy the situation.”

Sowah-Odotei was also King Faisal CEO and resigned from his post two seasons ago citing personal reasons.

He once contested for the Ghana Football Association presidential election but was disqualified.
