Former Ghana midfielder, Emmanuel Agyemang Badu, has questioned the character of some players following the abysmal performance of the team in the ongoing 2021 Africa Cup of Nations [AFCON] claiming some players are yet to understand the value of wearing the Ghana national jersey.

The Black Stars have been crashed out of the 33rd edition of the AFCON in an embarrassing fashion.

Ghana who were chasing their fifth continental title recorded just one point and finished bottom of Group C.

Speaking in an interview, the ex-midfielder stated that the players did not comprehend what it meant to feature for the Black Stars and that resulted in the poor display of the team.

“The national team is for every Ghanaian. But it is not every Ghanaian who can play for the Black Stars. The badge represents the spirit of the nation," the U-20 Fifa World Cup winner told Takoradi based Connect FM.

"So we need players with characters to represent us. I think some players now don’t know the value of the jersey,” the former Asante Kotoko midfielder added.

Agyemang Badu made 78 appearances for the Black Stars from 2008 to 2017, scoring eleven goals in the process for Ghana.
