The Ghana Football Association president Kurt Okraku has expressed his optimism ahead of the return of national juvenile league across the country.

He believes the juvenile league will aid in identifying budding talents during the season marking the start of a long term development project.

The competition which was launched last week has been dormant since 2018 following Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ investigative documentary dubbed ‘Number 12’ and the death of eight young footballers in Offinso last year.

Kurt Okraku, who doubles as the Head of the Juvenile Committee has promised Ghanaians of a flourishing competition.

“We will be pressing every button by way of regulations, logistics and infrastructure. Games are going to take place at what we call the game centers, games are going to take place behind closed doors and in very secure facilities across the country.” Kurt told JoySports

He also revealed that the country’s youth national teams have been disappointing in recent times due to lack of grassroot football.

“When we speak about the fundamentals, juvenile football is a key component of the fundamentals of association football. If it is that we’re not doing well at the youth level in recent times, it is because we’ve not placed too much emphasis on juvenile football and it is that time we have to put in a lot more energy.”

The 2020/21 Juvenile football season will start on Saturday May, 7/2021.
