Maxwell Konadu impressed with level of CHAN team

Local Black Stars head coach, Maxwell Konadu has hailed the performance of the players at camp at the moment at Len Clay Stadium.

The home-based Black Stars have started preparations for their upcoming 2016 CHAN qualifying first leg tie against Ivory Coast which will be played in Ghana on October 18 with the return leg in Abidjan a fortnight later.

“From what we have seen, the players have been highly impressive in training,” he said.

“Even the first division players who joined have been fantastic.”

Despite the praise given to the squad, Konadu believes some members of the team were below par in the performances and as a result they had to be axed from the squad.

“They are all doing their best but sometimes their best may not be good enough. And that is why we have to send some players home.”

Konadu did not also rule out the inclusion of new faces in the team before the team plays the first leg.

“We are still scouting for more players, some may come, some may go. We haven’t stopped. We are hoping to get an international friendly match to test our strength before the Ivory Coast match.”

Ghana placed second in the last edition of the CHAN championship in South Africa losing to Libya on penalties.
