Former Ghana FA chairman Alhaji Jawura says the Black Stars team is no more a fearsome side
The football administrator was commenting on the recent poor form of the Ghanaian national team.
Ghana suffered a 2-0 loss away to Egypt last month which has put their hopes of qualifying for the 2018 World Cup in jeopardy.
The Black Stars are currently ranked as 53rd team in THE latest FIFA Ranking released by FIFA in the month of November.
The former FA boss believes the Black Stars team is a side that can’t be feared presently on the African continent.
“I have no idea about the problem or what is happening to the team, because I have no access to what happens in the technical room,” Jawula told the Ghana News Agency as quoted by Ghana soccernet
“But I know that I have made an effort to put my idea across, that we have to consider all over again the concepts of Sulley Muntari and Kevin-Prince Boateng, but it fell on death ears.
“If we go into a competition like the way we did against Egypt, it would not help us. In football you have to create or liaise with your players, it gives you an extra advantage.
“Your opponent would have the feeling that they are facing a group of lions, they become scared of you, which is an advantage for you.
“But in our team who is the lion now? Dede Ayew, Jordan Ayew, fine. Who else will they talk about again? Who will they be afraid of? You need a team that would make your opponent panic and that’s why we need Sulley and Kevin back in the squad.
“When Bukhard Ziese was the coach of Ghana in the early 1990s, we played a match against Nigeria and Abedi Pele was not fit to play, he still decided to add him to the squad to cause panic to the Super Eagles, they did not know when he would be thrown into the game”
He: “We should open our eyes during the call ups because we have other big players in Europe. We need to scout well, we have to find a way and get back to our very best.”
