The Member of Parliament (MP) for Ningo-Prampram, Mr Sam ‘Dzata’ George has reiterated his stance on the disbandment of the senior national team, the Black Stars of Ghana.
The lawmaker, in a series of social media posts back in June 2019, chided the Black Stars team who played in the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Egypt and predicted an early exit.
Following the Ghana Football Association’s decision to relieve CK Akonnor of his duties as Head Coach of the Black Stars, Mr Sam George is back with an old suggestion that the team should be dissolved and withdrawn from international competitions for 2 to 3 years until a “solid” team is built.
Read his post below:
“See it’s early morning but you let me say my piece.
“Remember my interview with Nana Aba Anamoah and my comments on the Black Stars? I was emphatic that the Black Stars should be DISBANDED. We should withdraw from any international competitions for 2-3 years and build a solid fulcrum of local-based talents and groom them from the U-23.
“Many disagreed and called me names. Here we are now! Even if you appointed Ferguson or Wenger or Klopp or Mourinho, this team is going nowhere! The talent is either grossly deficient, aged or undeserving of wearing our national colours. Can you point out one true star player in our team maybe with the exception of Partey and Schlupp?
“We simply lack quality! This ain’t no Black Stars, this is a Black Dot! I personally like CK Akonnor and really hoped he would excel but he is no magician and failed to show any clear direction as to what his philosophy was. Football is no longer just a game, it is a science. Unless we treat it as such, even countries like Tuvalu and Tonga would soon meet us and spell Ghana.
“Let’s get back to the drawing board and think. Yes, think! The GFA must focus on rebuilding a solid team from the juvenile levels. Until that is done, can the Government stop throwing away our tax money and rather use it to fix another aspect of our country. The current Black Stars is a complete waste of our resources, time and emotions.
“It breaks my heart to say this but it is our stark truth and reality. The earlier we state it and do something about it, the better.🦁
“P.S: Feel free to disagree with me but bear in mind this is my opinion and my wall. If you come and misbehave, I would discipline you.😉
