Ghana’s Serbian coach Goran Stevanovic said on Wednesday he would give local league players the chance to prove their worth on the international stage.

"The door to the national team is wide open all the time and it is never shut on local players. Ghana abounds in talent and there are a lot of good players in this country," Stevanovic was quoted as saying by KickOff.

"We have already given some local players the opportunity to be in the national team. The likes of Ernest Sowah, Nathaniel Asamoah, Emmanuel Clottey, Daniel Adjei and Mohammed Awal have been invited and we will continue to give others who impress the opportunity."

 Stevanovic, who was appointed as Ghana’s coach in January after the departure of Milovan Rajevac,  also said he was impressed with the quality of the Ghanaian league.

"I'm very pleased with what I have seen in the League. It's a very quality and interesting League. It's competitive with a lot of talented players,” he added.

“The players will benefit a lot if the clubs play regularly in the African club competitions. By playing in Africa they will have a lot of international exposure which will aid their development.”
