Former Black Stars player John Painstil is backing head coach Otto Addo for the 2022 FIFA World Cup tournament in Qatar later this year.
The former Fulham FC player insists it is not new to see players who recently joined the Black Stars make the squad to the World Cup.
New players Inaki Williams, Tariq Lamptey and Mohammed Salisu are all expected to make the team to Qatar and Paintsil says if they go to the World Cup later this year.
“It’s up to him to invite players who will fit his system and philosophy to make sure that he has the right philosophy going forward,” Paintsil said as quoted by Kick Ghana.
“So we now become the supporters and spectators. We cannot decide for the coach, if the coach decides to go with the players (that played) the qualifiers or blend them together or go with the youth and experience, we all need to support.
“That thing has been happening, players play qualifiers and they don’t get the opportunity to play in the main tournament so its part of the game,” he insisted.
Painstil played for Ghana at two World Cups, in 2006 and 2010.
