Former Kotoko defender Eric Donkor compares Richmond Lamptey to Stephen Oduro

Published on: 08 May 2024

Former Ashantigold defender Eric Donkor has likened Richmond Lamptey to Asante Kotoko legend Stephen Oduro.

This was after downplaying the perception that the Ghana Premier League is of low quality as compared to previous years.

Citing Lamptey as an example, the former Asante Kotoko defender affirmed the Ghanaian top-flight can boast of quality players.

According to him, the notion that the Ghana Premier League is of low quality is null and void.

“We have quality players in the GPL who can match with players like Stephen Oduro, Ishmael Addo, Opoku Nti, and others. Richmond Lamptey is comparable to Stephen Oduro”

“People had loved for players like Malik Jaber, Stephen Oduro, and Charles Taylor and the rest because they played in our league for a longer period of time, and it is why their names are mentioned always. However, no one can persuade me that the league is of low quality”

“The current GPL players are of high quality, but fans can't get enough of them because they're always leaving the country. Stephen Oduro may be slightly ahead of Lamptey because Oduro has played in the local league for a long time, but Lamptey's future at Kotoko is uncertain at the moment”
