Would Messi struggle in the Ghana Premier League?

Messi would walk into every football team in the world. Right?

That wouldn’t be the case at Acrra Hearts of Oak, according to their goalkeeper Richard Attah. 

“We have a solid 30-man squad at the club. So, any player that joins us will have to fight for a place. No player can easily break into the team”, he told Angel FM.

“Even Lionel Messi will struggle to get playing time at Hearts of Oak!”

Despite being a six-time Ballon d’Or winner, Lionel Messi would have to battle with the likes of Abubakar Traore and Dominic Eshun to get into the squad according to Attah.

Attah, 25, joined the famed Ghana Premier League side last season from Elmina Sharks. He has since signed a three-year contract extension with the Phobians.
