Black Stars Cannot Win Afcon – Osei Asibey
Charles Osei Asibey, General Manager at 360 Radio, an Accra based new radio station has said that the Ghana Black Stars cannot win the Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon.
Speaking on Metro TV as a guest with Capt. (Rtd) Andy Sam of Aspire Football Dreams fame, he said the team led by Asamoah Gyan lack what it takes to win the prestigious continental diadem.
According to Osei Asibey who is also an Executive Member of the Sports Writers Association of Ghana (SWAG), the team is focused on money than glory and for him it would take a miracle for Ghana to take her fifth title after 1982.
He urged the COCAN for Gabon 2017 to make English documents available for the media from English speaking countries as it has often been a problem for Anglophone nations when Francophone countries host the tournament.
Captain (Rtd) Sam was also of the view that most African countries have developed their game technically and their players have been introduced to professionalism in Europe, so every African nation is playing well and there would be shocks and surprises like it happens always the tournament.
He noted that Ghana has experienced players as well as new talents who are quite young and must try to put Ghana in the final and eventually win the cup, if they are focused on going for fame and glory.
