Former football administrator Kojo Bonsu calls for the criticism of Andre Ayew for his World Cup penalty miss to stop.
Ayew missed a first-half penalty that would have given Ghana a morale-boosting lead against Uruguay.
The Black Stars went on to lose the decisive group game by a margin of 2-0 and exited the competition.
In defending the Ghana captain, Bonsu has warned that criticism will have a wider impact, even on future players.
"Dede Ayew has really done well for the country looking at his achievements for the country since he joined the National Team," Bonsu, who is also a former mayor of Kumasi, said.
"But honestly, he is weak [not in the best shape] now, so the country should give him a good testimonial or farewell game to retire him and avoid accusing him for the penalty miss. Should we continue with this attack, it will affect the next generation.
"We have a good team, we should calm down and avoid the unnecessary insults we rain on them."
