Kwadwo Asamoah Does Not Deserve To Be Bench Warmer

Former Hearts of Oak ace, Joe Addo has called on the technical team of the Black Stars to find a way to make Inter Milan defender Kwadwo Asamoah a regular part of the set-up.

Asamoah made a return to the national team ahead of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations since the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

At the recent Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt, he was handed a starting spot in only one game as the Black Stars exited the competition in the Round of 16.

“He is one of our best players and he is not a bench warmer," the former Ghanaian international said on Citi TV.

“He is an everyday player both in the [Italian] league and the Champions League.

“So he is somebody we have to accommodate in our national team because his experience will help these young lads go very far in the national team."

Asamoah was not called up by Ghana for their recent double-header of games against South Africa and Sao Tome and Principe in the 2021 Afcon qualifiers.

Before taking a break from national duty in 2014, he was a regular feature in the Black Stars since a producing run of fine performances in the qualifiers for the 2010 Fifa World Cup in South Africa.
