Black Satellites goalkeeper Ibrahim Danlad Ibrahim has revealed that the saddest moment in his career so far was when he was accused by Ghanaians of age cheating during the 2019 FIFA Under 17 World cup in India.
Ghana lost to Mali in the quarter-finals in that competition as Danlad committed a mistake to gift the Malians a goal in the game.
According to the 2011 Caf U-20 golden gloves winner, he was affected by age cheating comments from Ghanaians during the course of the tournament.
“Once in my life in my entire career, I was so down when we went to the world under 17 world cup when people back home were accusing me of age cheating, I was feeling very bad because I was fighting for my country and my own people are doing this to me on social media and everywhere,” he told Starr Sports.
“It really affected me and it showed in our game against Mali which I even made a mistake and we got eliminated from the competition”
“But now I have grown to accept that criticism is part of the job as Neymar always says it ”
“So now it doesn’t worry me at all when people make those accusations against me,“ Danlad added.
