Let us Stay Away From South Africa For Now

Thanks for the chance to feed back on your articles.

To achieve success in life, it is very important to work extra hard whilst clearly focused. Black Meteors players and handlers need just that. South Africa, at this crucial hour is not recommended nor suitable there exist many distractions.

Consider firstly as destination for enjoyment in every sense and the people's affection for Ghanaians. I resist to be specific but recall the behaviour of our players during the last African soccer fiesta there. Instead of football field training, the Black Star players were openly and shamelessly frolicking with their women body-guards in swimming pools. They never had enough sleep and stayed late in night clubs.

At a time Black Stars were heavily tipped, the boys lost their heads and came home disgraced. Let us learn from our mistakes and remember that celebrated warriors were best trained in the jungle/wild. Whatever is enticing our hard-working coach to South Africa can wait till the team finishes up the Zambian job in total victory. !

Nothing better will boost the boys' morale than using part of the cost to increase their pocket money and conditions in camp elsewhere.A word to the wise is enough. Thank you again.

Best of luck to Team Meteors in all future assignments.
