Renowned lawyer and a sports analyst Moses Foh-Amoaning has advised national team players precisely the Black Stars players to be patriotic and dedicated when it comes to the national duty.
His statement comes after Olympique Marseille players Andre Ayew and Jordan Ayew announced their temporary retirement from the senior national team on Tuesday.
The decision by the sons of football legend Abedi Ayew Pele come as a shock to many football pundits and enthusiasts.
“The Black Stars is a national team; it’s not just like any other club, this is our national team. All Ghanaians are behind the team. When the team is on an assignment, look at the togetherness and prayers Ghanaians backed the team with. The boys (Black Stars player) must understanding upon donning the national colours, it not just like you are playing for yourself or club. No, these are two different things together,” he explained.
Speaking to Peacefmonline.com, the former Chairman of the Ghana Boxing Authority and Ace Sports Broadcaster called on the Ghana Football Association to inculcate patriotism both on and off the pitch into the players.
“They need to put it into their heads and let them (Black Stars players) understand. But if not, they (Black Stars players) probably have to find another place. The players must understand that you are dealing with the whole nation so no one can just write a resignation letter to the GFA. That is an arrogant stand, it’s not a good sportsmanship,” he advised.
