Ghanaian Lawyer and seasoned Sports journalist Moses Foh-Amoaning, has advised the Ghana Football Association to consider appointing a Imam and a Pastor to serve as spiritual leaders for the Black Stars team.
Ghana, four-time African Champions, have secured qualification to play at the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup.
The West African giants are housed in the same group alongside Portugal, Uruguay and South Korea.
Otto Addo ‘s side recently took park in the Kirin Cup tournament held in Japan after a victory over Madagascar, and a stalemate against Central African Republic in the 2023 AFCON qualifiers.
With continuous allegations of ‘juju’ in the Ghanaian national team in recent years, Mr. Amoaning wants the country’s football governing body to get spiritual heads for the senior national team.
Reports emerged in the local media that some players took their own spiritualists to the Black Stars camp during the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations tournament.
And the memeber of the Justice Dzamefe Commission of Enquiry wants the FA to appoint a Pastor and Iman to clock down the issue of players bringing their own spiritualists in camp.
“As Ghanaians and for that matter Africans, we believe in spirituality and to avoid so-called juju problems at black stars camp, the management team must put in place a structure that is appointed official Pastor and Imam for the team,” he told Oman FM in Accra.
“No individual should be allowed to bring their own spiritualist to the camp,” he added.
Meanwhile, Athletic Bilbao striker Inaki Williams, Brighton right-back Tariq Lamptey and Southampton centre-back Mohammed Salisu have availed themselves to be part of the Black Stars team at the global showpiece in Qatar in November.
