Former Black Stars goalkeeper, Abubakar Damba has advised Felix Annan to stay positive and concentrate on training in regaining his playing position at the club.

Annan was famously relegated to the bench during the cancelled 2020/2021 Ghana Premier League campaign, with Head Coach Maxwell Konadu giving Kwame Baah the nod.

The development has affected the 25-year-old’s chances with the senior national team, the Black Stars, with Annan missing out on CK Akonnor’s first squad announcement back in March.

However, Damba, who is a former Dreams FC goalkeeper's trainer beleives Annan is still young and must concentrate and intensify his training.

"This is a young goalkeeper who has gone through the ranks. I talked to him one-on-one and on phone as well. He later thanked me. I told him there's no shortcut to success," he told Kumasi based Hello FM.

"It's like going to climb a tall storey building you have to do it step by step. If you want to rush you'll break your legs.

"He should calm down, there is time for everything. He should intensify his training and it should be harder than when he was regular.

"He has to remember that God does everything for a reason. He might have sustained an injury which could have ended his career if he had been put in the post, but God knows why probably that's why he's not in.

"He is still good and young goalkeeper. He still has a lot of time ahead of him. He should just remember that time will tell and God's time is the best," he added.
