Veteran Ghanaian football administrator Alhaji Grusah has slammed Southampton star defender Salisu Mohammed for turning down invitations to play for the Black Stars.
The former Real Valladolid center-back has rejected several invitations from the four-time African Champions.
Speaking on Asempa FM’s SportsNite show, the owner of Ghana Premier use King Faisal disclosed that Ghana FA President Kurt Okraku has met with the mother of the defender in an attempt to persuade the defender to rescind his decision not to play for Ghana.
The meeting, however, has proven futile as the defender still remains unavailable for selection.
Grusah has since blasted the left-footer central defender for being stubborn and also turning his back to his motherland.
“He doesn’t respect. I don’t know who is advising him. I taught his father at the Arabic school. His niece is also my classmate. I’ve taken steps to talk to him. His mother has also held a meeting with the President of the Ghana FA. But, he hasn’t changed his mind yet. He shouldn’t forget that he won’t play for Southampton for life. After his career he will come back to Ghana,” he mentioned on Asempa FM’s SportsNite.
Salisu, 22, was scouted to Europe by African Soccer Talent Academy.
