The coach of Medeama SC, Tom Strand has cast a slur on the Ghana Premier League, describing the nation’s top flight as a competition not credible enough.

The Tarkwa-based side’s Swedish coach claims the MTN FA Cup is a more credible competition which produces worthy winners, unlike the Ghana Premier League where there’s a perceived corruption and outcome of matches always questionable.

“The FA Cup is somehow different from the league because I have a feeling that is a very fair and genuine tournament where there is no… team wins”, Tom Strands told journalists at the GFA Secretariat on Tuesday.

“In the FA Cup, the best team wins and that is something they should be really proud of”, he added.

Both teams will receive GH¢1,000 worth of MTN recharge cards with the eventual winner set to receive an amount of GH¢40,000 while the runners up receive GH¢15,000.

The winner of this year’s competition finals will also earn a slot to represent Ghana in the CAF Confederation Cup and will receive GHS60,000 to boost their preparations for the competition.
