Executive Council Member of the Ghana Football Association, Nana Oduro Sarfo says Ghana’s foreign-based players are the right players for the Black Stars team.
The veteran football administrator believes that the foreign players are are shade ahead of the players plying their trade in the Ghana Premier League.
According to him, these are the reasons why he believes the current Black Stars players called for the Angola game is the right thing to do.
“Most of the players out there [in the squad], some came from the U-23. I have nothing against the selection of players, all I want is Ghana to win the game [against Angola],” he told Joy Sports.
“Black Stars call-ups are based on your performance for a period. If we have so many players in Europe and their performances are good juxtaposed against the local players here, they are a shade ahead of them, what do you want us to do?” he quizzed.
When asked if there is a quota for local players to be named in the squad, Nana Oduro Sarfo explained that there isn’t, and that until a policy is in place, the coach has the freedom to select the players he believes can deliver results.
“There is no quota. Until we decide that there should be a quota — maybe 30% should be local players, so be it.”
