My performance is making a case for experienced players – Awako

Great Olympics midfielder, Gladson Awako says Ghanaian clubs should take a cue from his performance to admit experienced players into their teams.

Clubs have often shunned players who once tasted the league, dubbing them as “veterans” or “old men”.

Awako, who joined Great Olympics as a free agent after leaving USLC side Phoenix Risings, believes he has made a case for the experienced players to have another bite at the Ghana Premier League.

“Sometimes, I think our clubs are making mistakes when they see players that have already tasted the league.

“They tag them “old men”, “veterans”, I think they should stop that.

“I think there are more players out there that feel they want to come and play the league again.

“I am an example and I have not done badly.

“So when they start saying “old men”, “veterans” it doesn’t sound well at all so I think they should stop that and allow other players to come,” Awako told Adamu Muftawu.

Awako, 29, played his domestic career with Hearts of Lions before joining Berekum Chelsea where he played a key role in their 2010/11 Caf Champions League campaign after winning the GPL.

The U-20 Afcon and World Cup winner joined Congolese club, TP Mazembe after a year at Berekum Chelsea.

He went on loan to fellow Congolese club, Don Bosco and later signed for USLC side, Phoenix Risings after the expiration of his contract with Mazembe.
