Former Ghanaian international, Muhammed Gargo has explained why he has been silent on issues on Ghana Football.
According to the former superstar, people who tell the truth are always tagged as enemies therefore he wants to maintain his low standards.
‘I am one of the fortunate players because I played at all the levels of our national teams, from the Starlets to the top but when it comes to the national issues I am quiet because when you tell the truth, they tag you and you become the enemy of either the national team or the FA.” Mohammed Gargo told Akoma FM in Kumasi.
When he was asked whether he is ready for a national team job, he said he is mature but he does not want to rush.
“At the national team, you have to pass through others who know people to lobby for you. I was once given assurances by the former FA president, Kwesi Nyantakyi, and also the former FA technical director, Mr. Oti Akenteng but all to no avail. I don’t want to rush so that when I get the nod, I will deliver so that it will open other avenues for other local coaches.” He added.
On the issue of whether CK Akonnor is capable of the Black Stars job, Mohammed Gargo said, CK is capable of the job but he will need some former players to support him.
“I know CK is tough and is capable of the role he has been assigned to but he will need some of the former players to back him to succeed.
When he has the likes of Abedi Pele, Tony Yeboah, Frempong Manso, and others as his technical team, the young guys can’t misbehave because these guys have seen it all.” He said
Gargo was a member of the men’s national team that won the bronze medal at the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona, Spain, and gold in the 1991 FIFA U-17 World Championship in Italy.
He started his coaching journey after his retirement from active football in February 2010 with New Edubiase United. He trained the club of the Poly Tank Division One League until summer 2010. On 6 August 2010, he was named the new manager of Poly Tank Division One League rival Real Tamale United. He coached the club RTU until November 2012 and resigned after the relegation from the Ghana Premier League. In September Namibian Premier League club Tura Magic F.C. signed a contract with Gargo as their head coach.
