Sam Johnson charges Black Stars players to unite ahead of 2019 AFCON
Former Ghana defender, Sam Johnson has called on the Black Stars players to stick together ahead of the 2019 AFCON.
The Black Stars have been charged to end the country’s 37 years trophy drought in Egypt.
However, according to the former Hearts of Oak centre-back, he observed that the players play individualistic football, just to impress at the expense of national interest and it does not help in the progress of the team.
He cited the era of Stephen Appiah when he was the captain of the team as the most successful because his qualities and leadership skills were outstanding.
“The Black Stars, most of them play selfishly, they play individual football. There is no unity in the team, they need to play as a team. Although there might be issues among them in one way or the other, they need not to bring those issues on the field, they rather need to find friends on the file, and not take personal matters there, it doesn’t help.
“Look, Stephen Appiah was very good, he used his leadership skills to unite the team, and this is what they need to be doing”, he said.
Ghana have been pitched in Pot 2 with the draw expected to come on April 12.
