Premier League coach turns yam seller


Former Secondi Hasaacas coach, Ben Bessa Zola, has confirmed he is now into yam exportation due to the current situation of Ghana football.

According to the former player, coaching as a job is not lucrative in Ghana.

He considers the selling of yam to be far better than training and guiding football players.

“I will be a liar if I say I’m following football now, currently I am concentrating on my yam business; I know what I’m going through so I thought exporting yams would be better,” he stated.

In an interview with Asempa Sports, the former Aduana Stars assistant coach said he would be insulted in the future by his grandchildren if he continues to remain a coach.

“There is no respect for coaches in Ghana; so the best thing is to advice yourself while in the job. If you don’t take care, you will be disgraced and your grandchildren will also come and insult you, so I prefer yam selling to coaching,” he added.

Football in Ghana has been in limbo since the Anas expose in June last year rendering most beneficiaries of football jobless.
