FIFA High-Performance Specialist, Faisal Chibsah, says identifying talent in Ghana is a difficult operation to undergo as there is no formula for it.

Ghana has been the production house for some great talents in the past and recent including players like Abedi Ayew Pele, Mohammed Polo, Asamoah Gyan and Mohammed.

On most occasions, these talents have been identified by individuals who have gone on to see these players at the top.

In an exclusive interview with JoySports, Chibsah said the environment in Ghana does not provide clubs with the technical know-how to identify talents.

“[Talent Identification] is a very difficult thing to do. I don’t think it’s easy. I don’t think there’s a blueprint or formula for that,” he said.

“But then it comes down to what you believe in, what your club philosophy is and how you align that to your talent ID philosophy, training scouts as well. In short, I don’t think there’s one way to do it but once you educate yourself in that environment, it becomes a little bit easier.

“At the end, you’re going to look at a kid now and predict the future of the kid. It’s impossible to do [because] I don’t even know what tomorrow is going to bring for me here that you’re going to predict the future of a kid who is five or 10 years life ahead of him. So it’s a difficult thing to do.

“But once you have structures and policies and much educated in that environment you will feel comfortable to say this kid may potentially become one of the best in the world.”
