Head coach of the Black Stars, Avram Grant has called on the Ghana Football Association and the Ministry of Youth and Sports to unit if they want the country to qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
The Israeli trainer and his team failed to grab all three points when they hosted the Cranes of Uganda at Tamale Sports Stadium last Friday as part of their world cup qualifying matches.
Football fandom has attributed the goalless drawn game to the impasse between the Ghana Football Association and the Ministry of Youth and Sports.
With no doubt, both parties have not been in good terms since the Member of Parliament for the people of Odododiodio Constituency came into power as the sports minister. There have been several accusations and media rebuttals between these parties but the former West Ham and Chelsea manager have called on both parties to unit if they want the country to qualify for the 2018 world cup.
”We need everybody together, from the politician to everybody to girls, boys, everyone to help give the team peace of mind. We need to learn that if there’s no support, the team is not winning which I’m not happy for but this is the situation we find ourselves.” Grant told Asempa Sport.
”Ghana has a strong team, we can win in Egypt, we can reach the World Cup but everybody need to be professional. If everybody will do his job, I can assure you that it will be good starting from the game against Egypt.
”We need to learn from our unprofessional preparations before Rwanda and Uganda and prevent a re-occurrence.
”Don’t put a finger and say this is your fault and my fault!” he added.
