Former Black Stars playmaker, Ibrahim Sunday has urged the Ghana Football Association to start building the Black Stars from the youthful stage.
According to Mr. Ibrahim, the national team Black Stars should be groomed from the U17 to the senior level. He opened up on this following the released of the provisional squad for preparations ahead of the AFCON.
Ibrahim Sunday insist that this itinerary will help the Black Stars to have a strong side.
In an interview with Mr. Ibrahim Sunday, the former Black Stars defender revealed the team is lacking with the style of play they’ve introduced. “We are lacking teamwork because whenever they are playing you can see some errors so I think we have to start preparations from U17 through the other national teams before we move them into Black Stars. Eigther than that they will still remain same.
“It is good to maintain the squad that recently won the U20 tournament in Mauritania. It’s not fair to invite only two from that team. They are a strong side. When we start building the team from the U17 they will start playing well and win but now if they don’t invite many of them, I don’t think is good.
“We are not making progress on preparing our team for the future. We should give them the chance. Maybe by next year, they will call about five. I don’t know what is the problem but I think we should do that.” He told Isaac Ganyo Tamakloe of ghanasportspage.com.
Ibrahim Sunday made 28 caps and scored 8 goals for Ghana between 1966 and 1977. He was among the squad that played in the 1968 and 1970 AFCON.
