Legend, and member of Ghana’s 1963 African Cup of Nations winning squad, Wilberforce Kojo Mfum has admonished current coach of the Black Stars Kwesi Appiah to be firm and fair with his selection of players into the team.
The coach has come under a lot of flak with the omission of the Ayew brothers from his latest call up and the living legend, known in his hay days as Net breaker ‘atete net’ , in a hearty chat with the Zylofon Sports team on his 82nd birthday, has advised Appiah not to budge to the seeming pressure from football fans.
“Kwesi Appiah should keep on with the good work because when something goes wrong with the team, his name will be mentioned hence he should do what will help him succeed”, he asserted.
“It got to a time, when we heard some players causing confusion in the team. If any player proves to be indiscipline, don’t give him a call up in order to protect your job. We the old footballers are in full support of his decisions and are solidly behind him’’, he revealed.
Ghana is scheduled to play their Kenyan counterparts in an AFCON qualifier next month with notable players like, skipper Asamoah Gyan, the Ayew brothers-Dede and Jordan, Agyemang Badu and Mubarak Wakaso missing from the list.
The team will pitch camp in Ethiopia on September 3 to prepare for the game.
