Ex Black Stars captain, Stephen Appiah has cautioned that nobody should take the Black Stars as his personal properties.
Appiah, who led Ghana to secure the first ever World Cup ticket in Germany 2006, says leadership must work in the general interest of Ghana rather than taking the team as their personal property.
The recent tension between the Ghana Football Association and Sports ministry has been blamed by many as the reason behind the teams’ poor showings, a viewpoint, Appiah also shares.
“My little advise to them (GFA and sports ministry) is that talking about Ghana Black Stars, the whole thinking should be Ghana and nobody should take the team as their personal property.” Appiah told the media.
“We have seen people, we have seen others be in charge of the position and this is not the way they handled the team so we all have to involve ourselves and ensure peace in the team because the path Ghana football is treading is not good for us”,
“They should stop all these things and come together so we see our national teams growing, not only Black Stars alone”,
“With all the hullabaloo and wrangling and we are talking of not getting sponsorship and getting money, meanwhile we keep fighting so who do we expect to put their money in that”, He added.
