Former captain of the Black Stars, Stephen Appiah, has allayed fears over the direction Ghana football is heading, per the ongoing tension between the Ghana Football Association (GFA) and the Ministry of Youth and Sports(MoYS).
The two bodies (GFA & MoYS) have not yet reached an amicable solution to issues concerning the management of national teams which has created a gap in communication, with regards to football activities including the local league and Women’s football.
Lamenting the Black Stars’ 0-0 stalemate with Uganda in a 2018 World Cup qualifier in Tamale on Friday, the iconic football star vented his frustration at the current happenings.
He said: “They should stop all these things and come together so we see our national teams growing, not only Black Stars alone.
“We have seen people, we have seen others be in charge of the position and this is not the way they handled the team so we all have to involve ourselves and ensure peace in the team because the path Ghana football is treading is not good for us,” he told MoonLite FM.
The retired footballer also reiterated the need for GFA and MoYS to put all personal egos aside and work in the interest of the nation as the Black Stars team is not an individual’s personal property.
