Renowned Ghanaian Scout Ebenezer Sefa, has attributed the Black Satellites sorry performance at the ongoing CAF U-20 AFCON to the absence of management members at the tourney.
He believes the performance of the team at least would have good if there were management members present at the competition to steer the affairs of the team.
All management committees for the various national teams were dissolved after the GFA Normalization Committee took over the administration of Ghana Football and Ebenezer Safa argues the absence of management members at the AFCON had negative impact on the team’s performance, hence failing to qualify for the 2019 FIFA U-20 World Cup which will be staged in Poland.
Ghana, despite winning the African Youth Championship three times and also becoming African’s first country to win the FIFA U-20 World Cup 2009 in, failed to make it to the semis of the 2019 CAF U-20 AFCON.
The Black Satellites recorded only one victory in their three Group stage matches and shamefully exited the competition.
After beating whipping boys Burkina Faso 2-0 in their opening game, they subsequently lost 2-0 to Senegal and 1-0 to Mali and the former Black Stars player has blasted Jimmy Corbblah and his boys for their poor display at the AFCON.
”I blame the absence of management members for Satellites exit at the 2019 AFCON” he mentioned in an interview with Accra-based Class FM.
Ghana’s last appearance in the U-20 World Cup was in 2015 in New Zealand where they exited at the Round of 16 stage after losing 3-0 to Mali.
