The Black Stars of Ghana’s head coach Chris Houghton, 64, in his pre-match conference this evening assured Ghanaians of Inaki’s willingness to score and also work hard for the team.
Inaki Williams, 29, has played 11 games for the national team and is yet to score but has been scintillating for Athletic Club Bilbao with 8 goals contributions so far this season in La Liga.
On his inability to score for the Black Stars, Chris Houghton said, “It’s a good question. It is our responsibility. What he has at the club he has a rhythm”.
“He is a player who plays every game, generally on the right-hand side these days even though he is a number 9”, he continued.
“They have the benefit of working with him every single day and have done for several years. We have to find the correct formula for the team to attack in the right way and attack in the cohesion way”, said Houghton.
“He’s benefiting from that, It’s our responsibility.
“Sometimes it can click straightaway sometimes it can take time”. There is no question about his willingness to want to score or to work hard”, continued Chris.
“We just have to continue to work hard to find the right formulas to give him the service that he needs but I understand the question and it is something that we will continue to do”, added Chris Houghton.
Ghana will play their first game tomorrow at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi against Madagascar at 4 pm.
