The head of the Technical Directorate of the Black Stars, Ben Koufie has criticized Ghanaian for over concentrating on issues that derails the attention of the playing body and the technical team of the Black Stars.
He has expressed that there is an issue on the mouth of Ghanaians everyday as if the country is making their debut appearance at the tournament and this always frustrate the team.
“Ghanaians always talk too much about unnecessary issues. If it is not budget, it is about the coach and now people are discussing whether the players should take their wives to the world Cup or not,” the former GFA boss (pictured) told Metro FM.
“What people are doing makes it looks like Ghana is participating in the World Cup for the first time or something has come from heaven which has never happened before. This is Ghana’s third appearance at the Mundial and even in Ghana’s maiden appearance in the competition people did not behave this way.
“All these discussions will confuse the whole atmosphere. How can the characters involved in the Black Stars keep a steady head under this condition? If we are not careful everything would be destroyed before the World Cup.
“Did the players send their wives to the two previous World Cups? Some of them bought tickets for their wives and that is fine and it is not a new thing for it to merit discussions everywhere.”
Ghana is drawn in Group G with Portugal, Germany and USA.
