Leicester City defender Daniel Amartey, has rendered an unqualified apology to Ghanaians following the Black Stars shambolic performance in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations tournament in Cameroon.
Ghana disappointedly exited the tournament in Cameroon after a shocking 3-2 defeat to Comoros on Tuesday.
The result saw Ghana finish at the bottom of Group C after failing to win any of their three group matches.
Also, this is the first time since 2006 that the Black Stars have been eliminated from the AFCON in the group stages.
“I don’t even know where to start and I don’t know how to put into words how I am feeling at the exact time. There were expectations placed on us when we left for the Afcon,” Amartey wrote on Facebook.
“We dialed Ghana and the fans across Africa with poor results. I will be one of the first to own up and admit we let Ghana down. A bad record was set and I profusely say sorry to all Ghanaians, As a member of the team, I know how my other colleagues feel at this moment.
“We are sad and hurt but we know Ghanaians are hurt more. I have just settled back into club football and I will continue to work harder for for the Ghana shirt. Sweat and and bleed for the Nation Ghana.Together we will win again. God bless you all.” He concluded.
