The Ghana Black Stars are out of the ongoing AFCON 2023 in Ivory Coast after another poor showing. The team went two goals up and gave it all out with a late penalty conceded by the skipper of the side, Andrew Ayew, and an avoidable corner by goalkeeper Richard Ofori.
AFCON 2023: Black Stars Were As Bad As Two Draws And A Loss
The Ghana Black Stars Were As Bad As Two Draws And A Loss
Ghana has proven again that it does not have what it takes to play at the AFCON anymore.
The results of the day sum up the team quality and seriousness of the Ghana Football Association.
Now that Ghana has failed to make it out of the group stage for the second successive Cup of Nations, it is time to get some heads rolling as well as start building a new team altogether.
The technical team and handlers of the Black Stars must be fired. All old players should exit the Black Stars, and Ghana must begin rebuilding the team without expecting any results.
Players such as captain Dede Ayew, Goal, and Amartey need to say good-bye to the team. Our current number-one goal is to keep. Richard Ofori is also not fit to protect the goal post of the Ghana Black Stars.
The World Cup qualifiers will start soon after the AFCON, and the sooner Ghana takes bold decisions, the better for the fortunes of the Black Stars.
Ghana also needs to consider foreign coaches and avoid imposing local coaches on such managers. Bringing on board local coaches as assistant managers does not seem to help us, even though Ghana wants such coaches to learn from the experience the foreign coaches bring on board.
If Ghana is serious about having an impact on African football, this is the time to start rebuilding.
The GFA must take tough decisions now, fire the head coach and his team, and quickly recruit a new manager for the team.
Ghana’s have lost hope and confidence in the Black Stars, and this poor showing and lack of focus, among others, which have led to Ghana drawing the last two games and losing the first one, leave much to be desired.
