Former Ghana striker, Augustine Ahinful has expressed his disappointment in comments made by Black Stars deputy coach, Ibrahim Tanko in the wake of Ghana’s 1-0 loss against Kenya last Saturday.
The deputy coach of the Black Stars, Ibrahim Tanko descended on some of the players for showing poor attitude during the Afcon qualifier defeat against the Harambee Stars of Kenya.
The team came under heavy criticism, particularly for their poor showing in the first half and their wastefulness in front of goal.
Speaking to Ohene Bampoe-Brenya on Happy FM‘s Anopa Bosuo, the former Grasshoppers sharpshooter lamented on the statement made by Tanko and claimed that it’s their sole responsibility to substitute players whom they believe were not giving off their best in the game rather than harshly criticizing them after the three points had already been lost.
“If indeed Ibrahim Tanko really said the players weren’t committed, then he should come again. He didn’t speak well. They are the coaches and they were supposed to take off the uncommitted players off the pitch,” Ahinful said on Happy FM.
The Black Stars are still on top of the group with a better goal advantage despite their loss to Kenya.
They will play two quick Afcon qualifying games against Sierra Leone next in October.
