Former Ghana international defender Samuel Osei Kuffour believes colts football is the best way to develop talents in Ghana.

According to the Ghanaian legend, he always feels sad anytime he thinks about the current state of colts football in the country considering the contribution of colts football towards the development of talents at the grassroot the level.

"I played for Fan Thomas a colts club in kumasi, Stephen Appiah played colts, Asamoah Gyan as well as most of the great players to have wore the national colors so it is important we go back to the basics and revive the game at the colts level".

He further expressed the over concentration at the senior level is what is killing Ghana football and the earlier we turn our attention to the juvenile game the better for Ghana.

Sammy Osei Kuffour, now a pundit on super sports started his career from colts with kumasi based Fan Thomas before rising through the ranks to play for some the biggest clubs in the world including Bayern Munich, As Roma as well other European giants and also represented Ghana at all levels of football during his illustrious playing career.
