Former Deputy Minister of Sports, Vincent Oppong Asamoah has alleged that Ghana have failed to win the Africa Cup of Nations [Afcon] due to the management members indiscipline.

According to him, management members struggle to close their zips while on international duty, accusing them of engaging in "combative fights" with players over women.

Ghana failed to win Africa's prestigious tournament for the past 38 years having won the last trophy in 1982.

Oppong Asamoah, who represents the people of Dorma West in Parliament, says there is lack of football ambience for the players to perform due to the increasing rate of "Casanova expedition" in the team's camp.

But former Deputy Sports Minister, Vincent Oppong Asamoah, who has travelled with the Black Stars extensively for international tournaments has attributed the country's several failed attempts to the sex drive of close officials.

“Ghanaians are too indisciplined, they cannot close their zips, when they travel for tournaments, they keep chasing girls, and disrupt the attention of the Players,” he told Accra based Happy FM.

“I have followed the Black Stars to many tournaments, and see some of the management members changing girls at the team’s hotel, they compete with the players for girls, most of whom are foreigners."

The embarrassing situation if not averted could spell another doom for the Black Stars ahead of next year's Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

Ghana secured its 23rd appearances at the continental showpiece in style after beating tinny Sao Tome 3-1 in their final qualifying match to end Group C as winners.
