Speaking on Kumasi-based Ultimate FM, the Asante Kotoko’s Jabir blames the poor performance of players on excessive sexual intercourse
Asante Kotoko technical director Malik Jabir has claimed that the poor standard of football in Ghana’s domestic league is because the players indulge in too much sexual intercourse. According to him the league has not progressed as hoped, because players spend time having intercourse before matches.
The Former Ghana international made the baffling claim in an interview with Ultimate FM. Speaking with the Kumasi-based radio station, Asante Kotoko’s Jabir blames the poor performance of players on excessive sexual intercourse, as he complained about the lack of progression made in the division.
Shedding light on his claims, the veteran coach said majority of footballers get easily drained during games; and are unable to last the entire duration of a game because they neither sleep nor train enough. He continued that the reason they get tired easily is because they hey don’t sleep enough, don’t train enough and engage in too much sex.
Also speaking on the interview, he revealed that the U-23 team in recent times receive no attention from the FA, thus making people oblivion of the team.
The rules of sexual relations in sports vary from country to country; however, the general norm is that it is best for athletes to abstain from sex prior to their games. Some researchers have also speculated that it might impede achievement for psychological reasons, perhaps by reducing motivation, alertness or commitment.
The Late Mohammad Ali, argued to be the greatest boxer ever, reportedly impose a six-week sex ban on himself before his fights.
However, researchers have so far not been able to ascertain if there is a direct link, positive or negative, between sex and athletic performance.
