Beef the squad: Sam Arday urges massive changes to Satellites before World Cup

‘Multi system’ coach, Sam Arday has expressed utmost dissatisfaction with the performance of the national U-20 team at the recently concluded Africa youth championship in Senegal and wants the side’s technical team to effect whole changes to the team ahead of their World Cup later this year.

Coach Arday, currently technical director of Ghana Premier League side, WAFA insists Ghana abound in talents far exceeding those who won bronze for the country after beating Mali in the match for third place having lost to Nigeria in the semi finals.

The man who famously led Ghana to become the first African country to win a medal in soccer at the Olympic Games in Barcelona 1992, is adamant Satellites helmsman, Sellas Tetteh must add a host of new faces before Ghana fly to New Zealand for the May 30 to June 20 FIFA U-20 World Cup.

Ghana will face serial winners, Argentina as well as Panama and Austria in Group B at the 24-team tournament and Coach Arday believes the Black Satellites need better players to stand a chance of repeating the country’s 2009 triumph.

‘The team I saw in Senegal was not the best. I think the technical handlers of the team must make some changes before the World Cup,’ Coach Arday told

‘The performance from the team wasn’t the best and this time around they are going to face world class teams like Argentina and the rest so they must assemble the best of players,” the 1995 U-17 World Cup winning coach affirmed. Follow @thedonplato
