Former Black Starlets head coach, Frimpong Manso has urged Ghanaians not to expect much from the Black Stars captain Asamoah Gyan.
The UAE based player was substituted on the 71st minutes after he was brought down in the eighteen yard box of the Cranes in the 31st minutes in the first half.
But the former BA United coach has urged the supporters not to expect much from the veteran striker.
“The team has done very well.” He told Asempa FM. “They defended as a team but there some lapses in the team but in all they did very well.
“They had problems in their preparations but they have done very well. On the flanks, Atsu did very well but the team was lacking was that they were not able to create enough chances.”
Many football fans have slammed the Jordan Ayew for his selfish play. The Aston Villa striker didn’t impressed the supports much which led many supporters calling on the coach to drop the Villa striker but Frimpong has urged the public to bashing the striker but rather understand how he plays.
“That is how Jordan plays. He likes to hold on to the ball and he is able to harass defenders so naturally that is how he plays so for me he wasn’t bad on the day so I will urge the public to stop bashing him because he is a good.
“He always wants to do something extraordinary so let understand him and I know he will deliver for the country.
“We shouldn’t expect more from Gyan because he is using his experience. It very obvious that he is declining gradually so if he is able to play and help the team to win it is always god for the country.
“The win will give the team more confidence so we should expect an improved team in our next match against Mali on Saturday.” He added.
The Black Stars are leading Group D with three points and will play Mali on Saturday January 21st.
