Ex-Black Stars forward Anthony Yeboah says misapprehension among his teammates cost the team at the 1992 Africa Cup of Nations.
Ghana suffered a painful defeat to Cote d’ Ivoire in the finals after a penalty marathon.
The Black Stars lost 11-10 during the shootouts with Anthony Baffoe who captained the team on the day missing his kick.
According to Yeboah, several misunderstanding between the players amounted to the team’s failure to win the Cup of Nations title in a tournament which had everything going their way.
“We realized we made a lot of mistakes, we were supposed to win the tournament totally because we were much better than the others,” the Frankfurt legend was speaking to GTV Sports plus.
“Unfortunately Abedi Pele missed the finals because he was suspended and that was a big miss because he was one of the key players and the captain of the team.
“Just petty things we couldn’t do right cost us that trophy but the team we had at that time was fantastic.
“There was also a little bit of misunderstanding in the team.
“Yes it is true (That the team was split), because you could see from some of the players. For example when we meet or when we sit together as a group you could see the Kumasi people sitting at a particular place and the Accra people also sitting at a particular place, we didn’t have problem against each other but as I was saying there was some misunderstanding. The team work wasn’t like it supposed to be so I think that cost us a lot.”
Yeboah, one of Ghana’s greatest ever strikers could not get a hand on a Cup of Nations title despite his amazing time with the National team.
