Calls for the Ghana Football Association to apologise after the Black Stars exit from the 2022 FIFA World Cup has been questioned by Executive Council Dr Tony Aubynn.
Ghana failed to go from the group stage after placing last in Group H. They lost to Portugal 3-2, fell to longtime rivals Uruguay 2-0, and beat Korea 3-2.
For so many years, Ghana failed to even qualify for the FIFA World Cup, let alone take part, thus no one needs to demand the GFA to apologise, according to the chairman of the Medeama Board.
“I will not speak for the GFA on whether to apologise or not but personally, this is a World Cup we failed to qualify in the past years,” Dr Aubynn told Kumasi-based radio station Akoma FM in an interview
“In our previous participation at the World Cup, two were successful and the other two including this one didn’t go well. We just have to learn from our mistakes and avoid the talk of whether to apologise to Ghanaians or not.”
He also questioned whether group-stage losers like Germany and Uruguay, former world champions, would offer an apology.
“The materials available was what the coaches used, the FA did everything right (via motivation), we just didn’t do well. Will Germany also apologize for their exit?”
“Because people tipped them(Germany) as favourite but were eliminated, they told themselves it’s a building process same as Morocco. We just need to give our players the needed time since we are building.”
