Former Hearts of Oak striker, Abednego Tetteh has said that the Indian top-flight league is way above the Ghana Premier League(GPL) in terms of organization and attracting foreign players.
The former Al-Hilal Omdurman forward was part of the Hearts of Oak squad that won the GPL last season, although he featured in few games and thus has terminated his contract with the club.
In an interview with Ashaiman TV, Tetteh who has had a stint in the South Asian country said football in India is far more developed than what people think.
“I’ve had the chance to play in India. India football and their league are 80% higher than the Ghana Premier League. I always laugh when I hear some journalists underrating Indian football. If someone sits back there and says Indians are only good in acting movies, it’s never true,” he told Ashaiman TV.
He added, “Our own captain Asamoah Gyan can testify to that. India football is not what we are doing here. Every week they make sure they invite panellists from the EPL, show the matches live, and discuss them.
“They also have players from different countries who are playing in the league. They were colonised by England, so they do their things like the English.”
“Here in Ghana, it’s only Fabio Gama and one or two players from Nigeria who have come to play here.”
