Malik Jabir, who represented the Black Stars at the 1968 and 1972 Olympic Games and coached Ghana in 2003, believes Ghanaian stars should focus more on football than sex.

"A lot of today's players cannot play 90 minutes because they get tired so easily," he said, as quoted by AS.

"And you know why? Because they don't sleep enough and don't train enough and they engage in too much sex.

"There are beautiful young girls in Ghana and they won't leave them alone.

"There is time for sex and time for football, but if you mix the two, you will never reach the top." 

The 71-year-old is currently a technical adviser for Asante Kotoko, a professional club in the Ghana Premier League, and was speaking mainly about the level of the country's top local league.
