Leslie Kuuku Bartels, president of lower tier side Nkoranza Warriors, has prayed the Ghana Football Association to partner the Health ministry in order to provide ‘proper’ medicals for footballers.

The Federation are taking steps to improve on the health of footballers on the domestic scene by forming a three-man medical committee led by Dr Baba Adams.

The committee have since laid down their plans to improve on the health of players by issuing health certificates as well as ensuring clubs take players through mandatory medical tests.

Sharing his opinion on the matter, the budding football administrator wants the Ghana FA to partner with Ghana Health Service in order to make the process more effective.

“The medicals we are doing in Ghana is not closer to the other teams in Europe at all

“Since the time I joined Nkoranza Warriors in 2017, I haven’t seen a player fail medicals in Ghana, so I ask myself what kind of medicals are we doing in the country”

“The GFA must have partnership with the health service in the country to get a place for proper medicals for all the 16 clubs players to do their medicals before the season start” Mr Bartels concluded.
