France-based midfielder, Salis Abdul Samed is asking the Ghana Football Association and yet to be announced coach of the Black Stars to keep the current core of the team.
He believes Ghana failed to deliver at the 2022 FIFA World Cup tournament in Qatar because the players didn’t know themselves well before the Mundial.
Salis thinks the team lacked chemistry and cohesion and wants the team to be maintained for upcoming future tournaments.
Ghana ranked as the youngest squad at the World Cup in Qatar.
According to the Clermont Foot midfielder, the current Black Stars team will need time to bond well with each other, a trait they lacked going into the World Cup.
Salis, who was among the break out stars in the Ghana team at the World Cup revealed team cohesion and familiarity was what was lacking in the squad.
“It was a good experience for us. We learnt many things from it [World Cup].”
“Even though we don’t know each other much we did well, though the nation is a bit sad because we were unable to qualify. We did our best, everyone gave his all, I think this team is very solid just that we don’t know each other,” he said in an interview with 3Sports as monitored by The Finder.
“To me, we are now building the team. We are learning because we don’t know each other, I think we could have done much more if we knew each other. I think that if the staff, management and the President, Kurt Okraku could keep the same team or make some additions because we have good players in Europe, it’s a build-up team and I think we have the qualities just that we don’t know each other much”
He added: “We need to work together and be more compact when we’re defending and help each other as we did against Portugal”.
