Wa All Stars coach Jimmy Korblah has ruled that this season’s FCPPL has been the most competitive contest he has witnessed. “The table speaks for itself. Right from the fourth placed team to the last but one [Hearts of Oak], any team can join the top four or drop into relegation so it is very difficult one,” coach Korblah ended. “I think it is very tough and very dicey because teams come to you home, you find it difficult to win; you go to their home and they also find it difficult to win. It has been tough. Korblah whose direct involvement as a coach in the Ghanaian topflight began in 2003 at Hearts of Lions watched his current side Wa All Stars displaced from 5th position after a 1-3 defeat to Asante Kotoko on Wednesday. “I started coaching at the Premier level right from the 2003/04 season with Lions. I have never seen this kind of [competitiveness] before,” he said. Four teams – Heart of Lions, Liberty, Bechem and New Edubiase United have 34 points apiece behind ninth-placed Sekondi Hasaacas who also have 36 points. B.A United’s relegation was confirmed by the 5-0 loss to Heart of Lions on Wednesday. They have only managed 18 points from 26 points with Hearts of Oak (32) and Great Olympics (33points) trying to fight their way out of joining the Soccer Apostles to Division One next season.The table–Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @Joy997FM.
