A football fan by the name Mohammed has launched a shocking attack on Black Stars players as he describes them as stingy.
Mohammed travelled from Kumasi to Accra to see the Black Stars off for their trip to South Africa on Saturday morning for the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
He was, however, left disappointed at the Kotoko International Airport as none of the players showed him any act of kindness.
The travelling players’ decision to overlook him in spite of his four-and-half hour travel from Kumasi to Accra to see them off has therefore angered him, forcing him to draw a comparison between the current crop of players and their predecessors.
As a result, he has called for the likes of Afriyie Acquah and Richmond Boakye-Yiadom to be recalled into the team because of their acts of kindness to supporters.
“You are in the media and you know we have some players who like you,” he told Enock Kwasi Wallanyo Wallace, Head of Sports of the Akan brands of the Multimedia Group who is travelling with the Black Stars.
“But these crop of players they won’t even laugh with you,” he added with a stern face.
“They won’t even smile with you. They won’t give you even 1 cedi. Call back Afriyie Acquah and Boakye Yiadom, they are the ones that can give us something,” he continued.
“My name is Mohammed and I am a football fan. I came to see them off from Kumasi, but wasted my money,” he added.
