Former Black Stars Defender Cries Over Wasted Talents In Ghana

Former Accra Hearts of Oak and Black Stars defender, Joe Addo, has bemoaned the poor management of talents across the Nation as the bane of our poor run of form in recent years. The retired Black Stars defensive stalwart blamed the Ghana Football Association and the Black Stars management committee for allowing promising talent to waste in the last few years.

Joe Addo suggested to the Football Association to place their faith in some exceptional players from the domestic championship and players in the remote areas of the country if they are to avoid the recent arrival of foreign players in the Ghanaian team. He did not mince words in ruling out the quota concept suggested by many people but leaned on the FA to hand Black Stars call up to exceptional players in the Ghana premier League.

“I am not saying they should be specific number for players from the local league but a call up to some few players even if it is to gain experience like Brazil did to Ronaldo in the USA ’94 world cup.

“Some exceptional players can be given a call up for him to get experience of what goes on at the tournament.

“They are so many talented players scattered across the Nation’s but no laid down succesion plan is been put in place by the FA or the Black Stars management committee”, Joe Addo said.

The retired Ghana international enjoyed a stellar career with Accra Hearts of Oak before eating a call up to the Black Stars whiles with the Rainbow family in the early 90s. Many are calling for a laid succession to be put in place that will allow your players graduate into the senior National team from the Under 17 level.
