Team Manager of Ghana Black Stars, Ameenu Shardow has admitted that, Ghana football has fallen and isn’t at the elite level at the moment but strongly believes with huge and better investment, it can rise up again to the top tier.
The Team Manager holds the opinion that, the national football club have been a diminished version of themselves in recent times due to the team’s struggle to win matches consistently.
Ghana has been excluded from Africa’s top 10 rankings in the last one year due to the drop in performance. Despite being four-time African champions, Ghana is yet to win the Africa Cup of Nations in over forty years now – with the last triumph happening in 1982 in Libya.
According to Ameenu, the team’s recent matches should serve as a wake-up call, motivating them to strive for improvement in order to regain their rightful place in football.
He noted the passionate support Ghanaians have for the Black Stars, with the desire to see them win matches on a consistent basis.
However, he called for patience and understanding, as he says the team requires time to rise to the level of success it once enjoyed.
“I understand as Ghanaians we love our football and want to win all the time but it will take time. We need to do more and invest more to bring our game back to the top level and that would take time before we get to the top again and I know we’re learning from our mistakes”, he said in an interview.
