Black Stars B head coach Maxwell Konadu has explained the reason he has excused players of Asante Kotoko and Ashantigold in his team’s preparations for the CHAN qualifiers against Burkina Faso.
According to the coach, both Kotoko and Ashantigold are representing Ghana in the CAF inter club competition so there is no need to distruct their players with call ups.
But the former Asante Kotoko coach hinted players of the two clubs might be invited when they are done with Africa.
“When a team is competing in Africa we don’t distruct them or their preparation with call ups because they also representing Ghana”
“That’s why they have been neglected for now and we will give anyone who deserves a place in our team a call up when they are done with the Africa” He told footballmadeinghana.com
Maxwell Konadu also confirmed the team will not train at the Baba Yara stadium throughout next week to make way for Kotoko to prepare for their CAF Champions League game against Kano Pillars.
“It’s true that Asante Kotoko will be engaging Kumasi Baba Yara Stadium in the course of next week very often, we will excuse them for next week and find other venue for our training, either Paa Joe or Opoku Ware then return after Asante Kotoko is done using the pitch”.
Twenty-seven (27) players are currently in camp preparing for the game against Burkina Faso scheduled for September 26.
