Dreams FC chief Kurt Okraku says Ghanaians must offer support to Black Stars head coach James Kwesi Appiah as he works to rebuild the Ghana senior national team.
Ghanaians have lauded the head coach’s decision to drop brothers Andre Ayew and Jordan Ayew for Ghana’s 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Uganda and the international friendly with Saudi Arabia.
Though most Ghanaians are in favour of the decision a section of the Ghanaian fans feel the ex-Ghana captain must be able to manage the Swansea and West Ham stars.
But, Okraku, who is a member of the Ghana FA’s Executive Committee, wants Ghanaians to offer unflinching backing to the coach.
“I am sure a lot of people were surprised by the omission of the Ayew brothers in the team but if you are a trainer I’m sure that you would stay with that strategy because he didn’t have the benefit of using the two in our last games and naturally you would like to continue,” he told Football Made In Ghana.
Andre and his younger brother Jordan failed to travel with the Ghana squad for their 5-1 away win over Congo Brazzaville for varying reasons of injury and sickness but the two featured for their clubs just days after missing the Ghana game with injury and sickness.
Some Ghanaians have questioned the commitment of the two brothers to the national team and have called for their heads.
