After the unceremonious exit of the Black Stars of Ghana, Kurt Okraku, Ghana Football Association head has taken full responsibility for the shambolic outing recorded by the male national team at the ongoing African Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
The FA boss while speaking with Asempa FM (Ghanaian Radio Station) on Thursday few days after Ghana’s group stage exit, said he takes full responsibility for the poor performance of the team at the tournament just like a leader of the family.
“It didn’t work. I’m a leader of the family, I take full responsibility but also our collective responsibility to remain calm to support this gallant Black Stars or players who have offered themselves to serve our country.” Kurt said while answering the question of who to blame.
The former sport journalist however could not tell specifically what went wrong for the team in Cameroon recording a point with two loses.
“It is a very easy question to ask but it is also a very difficult answer to give.”
The football administrator meanwhile tried to hold brief the coach and his selection.
“By far and by way of data, coach Milo has been one of the best coaches Ghana has had. We believed in Milo and gave him the job unfortunately it didn’t work and we take responsibility for that”.He said
“I have heard a lot of commentary on coach Milo’s selection and I wonder why it is so. Every player selected deserved the call-up.
Milo selected the best Ghanaian players around”.
Kurt however called on Ghanaians to rally round the team and give them massive support to do better next time.
“[Black Stars] need support so they can grow and win trophies. For those who were not ready to serve GH we can’t force them. These are the players who dedicated themselves to the nat’l cause and who want to sacrifice even in difficulties…”
