Louis Agyemang & Owu Dropped From Stars.

Listen to article

Black Stars coach Ratomir Dujkovic has axed former Asante Kotoko goalkeeper, George Owu and Louis Agyemang from the Black Stars due to inactivity.

The two players are leaving the stars ahead of their preparations for the stars next world cup game against Burkina Faso in June 5 in Ghana.

Though the Serbian insisted before the Congo DR game that he wasn't overly bothered by the duo's lack of playing time, he seems to think the continued months of inactivity might affect their output for the national team.

Louis Agyeman has not featured for his club (Hearts of Oak) due to an ongoing wrangle over his contract.

George Owu has found himself out of favour at his club Asante Kotoko and the team's management has refused to register him along with four other players for the new season.

Dujkovic in his attempt to find an answer to the Black Star's goal scoring difficulties, is scheduled to leave for Germany tonight to watch the Budesliga encounter between Isaac Boakye's Armenia Bielefeld and Ibrahim Tanko's Freibury.

He is expected to hold discussions with the two strikers afterwards in an effort to lure them back into the squad.

Dujkovic has not invited Tanko into the setup since taking up the Stars' job in December while Isaac Boakye has struggled with injuries.

The coach will then proceed from Germany to other European countries in his quest to interact with some key players before the stars move to camp next month.
