He further said if the pitches are improved it might result in good performances from the teams participating in the league.

"If the fields were to be improved, then it might have a better style of play for some of the teams.

He added that if our pitches are upgraded it will improve the Ghana Premier League and the performance of players as well.

"More confident to play possession football which will therefore improve division one and improve Ghana premier league and also improve the Ghanaian players if the fields were to improve".
