Accra Hearts of Oak defender Fatau Mohammed says it is very hard to survive as a Ghanaian footballer when you ply your trade in Ghana.

Speaking on Accra based Asempa FM this morning, the hard-tackling defender told the general public although his club takes good of him, but comparing the situation in Ghana to those of his colleagues who ply their trade outside the country, you can clearly see the difference.

According to him, because those plying their trade outside the country are given the right nutrition are also well paid, it helps them a lot in their development in terms of stature and everything.

"People have been complaining about the heights and stature of Ghanaian players, but how can you gain weight when you don't get the right food to eat."

"When those outside comeback home and you get close to them, you can cearly see the difference because they get the right food to eat but we hear just eat anything."

"In other jurisdictions, during the off season when footballers return home they sponsor their families but in our case when we go home, our families rather take care of us all because we don't make enough."
