Former Black Stars player-maker Abdul Karim Razak ‘Golden Boy’ says the Black Stars failure to book a ticket to the 2018 World Cup is not a one man’s fault but a fault of the entire nation.
The former Asante Kotoko trainer in an interview with Accra based Vision 1 FM said ”Ghana’s inability to qualify to Russia 2018 World Cup shouldn’t be considered as a fault of one person but a fault of everybody,” he stated.
He continued “The country’s qualification uncertainties is not the end of the world for us as a nation because this isn’t the first time Ghana has failed out from the roll-call books of the World Cup. It even happened during our time”
“The right time will come, so individuals should drop their accusing fingers towards Coach Kwesi Appiah, the FA and the management committee’’.
‘Golden Boy’ as affectionately called is much remembered in his footballing days at the 1978 African Cup of Nations where his impressive performance helped Ghana to win the title and was also adjudged the African footballer of Year in 1978.
Razak, aside plying his trade as footballer in Ghana for Kumasi Corners Babies and Asante Kotoko also travelled to play for clubs like Al Ain FC, Arab Contractors and Africa Sports.
He was as well ranked by the Confederation of African Football [CAF] in 2007 as one of the confederation’s 30 best footballers of the previous 50 years.
