Ghana Black Stars

Osman Seidu, a football coach, has stated that controversy will always arise from player selections for the Black Stars.

On Thursday, 18th March 2021, Charles Kwablan Akonnor released a 29-man squad for the AFCON qualifiers against South Africa and Sao Tome and Principe. The selection was generally met with confusion.

In an interview on the Joy Sports Link on Saturday, Osman hammered on the fact that quality, standard of players called and results should be the main focus.

“I think it has to do with opinions and the way people do things differently. If we [fans] are allowed to pick players for the Black Stars, we would definitely have different opinions. There will always be controversy when it comes to selection of players,” he told Nathaniel Attoh.

“But the bottom line is the standard and quality of players called. That is where the argument should be. What process did we go through before selecting these players? The most important thing is the end result. If we do not get the needed result, there will be issues. Disagreeing with selections will always be an issue,” he concluded.

The Black Stars will take on South Africa on 25th March and host Sao Tome and Principe three days later.
