Ghanaian-born Dolphins forward, Owusu Addai, has revealed that his decision to leave Ghana and play in the Nigeria Premier League has yielded more dividend.
Owusu, who is with his second Nigerian team, Dolphins, after a stint at former Caf champions league finalist, Heartland, has since become a favourite of the fans at Dolphins.
“I think the game in Nigeria and Ghana is the same in terms of quality of play. While I enjoyed the game in Ghana, I also enjoy the way it is played in Nigeria. The only difference is in terms of remuneration and refereeing,” Owusu said to SuperSport.com.
“In Nigerian football, there is much more money than in Ghana. The players are well paid in terms of salaries, allowances and sign-on-fees, but Nigerian referees are terrible.
“It is only in Nigeria that you can hardly win away from home because the referees will not allow you to score and even when you do the goal can be disallowed for no reason at all. In Ghana, the referees are more human,” he added.
The former Liberty Professionals forward played for Heartland in the 2009 Caf Champions League. He joined Dolphins from Heartland in a mid-season transfer last season and managed four goals, three in the Federation Cup and one in the League.
Owusu started the current campaign on a good note with the goal that earned Dolphins the first away win at Plateau United.
