Ghanaian attacker Abdul Majeed Waris has disband Wakasu’s allegations that partisan politics has been the reason why Black Star has not been winning trophies for the Country.
According to him, the politics in the player selection has caused more damming effects to the black stars than partisan politics.
In his interaction with astute sports journalist Sadick Adams Obama on YAC Media Instagram Live, Waris disclosed that player selection into the Senior National team has not been based on performance but on the politics in the team.
“I saw Wakasu making a comment that political aspect is affecting the Black Stars.
I feel that it is not the political thing that is affecting the performance of the players on the field because politics does not play football.
I think with the national team, the politics affects the selection of players.
With me they call you from Europe when you’re performing and always drop you like a scapegoat for players who do not even play half a season and I’m not going to talk about myself alone.
I feel the political aspect of player selection is something that is affecting the Black Stars. The selection is not based on your performance, it’s only based on politics in the team and I think it is something that affects us at tournaments because that’s the biggest stage that everyone wants to be part and that’s also when the politics get in a lot”
The 28 year old Waris who plays as a striker for Strasbourg on loan from Porto B had his maiden international call up in 2012 and has since 31 caps with four goals.
