John Blay, father of Justice Blay, is confident the Medeama Sporting Club midfielder will be present in the national team sooner or later.
The defensive midfielder received his maiden Black Stars call-up earlier this year under head coach Charles Kwablan Akonnor.
Blay played in the 3-1 win over Sao Tome and Principe during the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers as he replaced Mubarak Wakaso for the last 12 minutes of the game.
An injury during the course of the 2020/21 season meant that the player stayed off the football pitch to quicken his recovery leading to him losing his place in the national team.
However, his father is confident the 29-year-old will make a return to the Black Stars team, while dismissing reports of the player quitting the sport.
“It’s never true that my son has quit football. Blay has started training, he even surprised everyone in a Monday special game so I’m surprised about such rumors,” Mr. John Blay told OTEC FM
“With his performance I saw, I believe very soon my son will be part of the Black Stars team again” He added.
Blay made 19 appearances for Medeama in the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League season and scored three times as they finished fifth on the league log.
