World Cup winner from 1990, Lothar Matthäus has officially purchased shares in Ghana Premier League side, Accra Lions together with two partners of his.
The club is said to be worth more than $6 million and will jointly be owned by football agent, Oliver König from Frankfurt and Ghanaian footballer Frank Acheampong.
In an interview with Bild, Lothar Matthäus said Ghana has a large pool of talents, which must be tapped into.
Ghana has always had huge potential for talent, you can see that in the national team,” said the 62-year-old.
“We want to bring young players to Europe. In a serious way and already well-trained. That’s why we’re also investing in the training ground here.”
They currently occupy the ninth position on the Ghana Premier League table and have been a strong force since joining the league ahead of the 2022/2023 season.
