Joseph Luke Wollacott has expressed his respect for Ghana’s deputy captain, Richard Ofori after meeting with him at the senior national level for the first time.
Wollacott was made Ghana’s new number one goalkeeper after his first call-up to the Black Stars by former coach Milovan Rajevac.
At the time he joined the Black Stars team for the World Cup Qualifiers against Zimbabwe and South Africa, Ofori was out injured.
The two goalkeepers met for the first time at the national team when Ghana took on the Super Eagles of Nigeria in the 2022 World Cup playoff in the month of March.
Despite Ofori’s return to the team, Wollacot was kept as Ghana’s first choice and the English based goalie had revealed the relationship between him and his captain.
Asked about maintaining the post ahead of Ofori in the subsequent games and at the world cup, Wollacott had this to say;
“Probably not. It’s good working with him. He (Richard Ofori) pushes me and I do the same. I have a lot of respect from him”, he said in an interview with Happy FM in Accra.
