Head coach of the Black Stars, Kwasi Appiah has rubbished claims that he is having problems with some senior players in the team.
The former Al Khartoum manager has been criticized by many football fans after his 18 man squad was released ahead of the 2019 AFCON qualifier against Kenya.
Kwesi Appiah snubbed captain Asamoah Gyan, Andre Ayew, Jordan Ayew, Mubarak Wakaso and Jonathan Mensah from his squad.
But the quite looking gaffer has rejected those claims insisting he is building a new team and wants to give an opportunity to the younger ones.
“We are building the team for 2019 and beyond and so the fact that a player is absent today doesn’t mean the door is perpetually closed to that player,” Appiah stated.
“I don’t think it makes sense for a coach to fight a player; players don’t give their best shots in such cases; it is neither here nor there for people to think a player is not in a team because there is tension between the coach and the player,” he added.
