The Ghana Football Association is trying to convince Southampton’s Mohammed Salisu to represent Ghana at the national level but the English-based player has refused to respond to the calls concerning playing for the Ghana national team, Black Stars.
It was all over the internet and social media that some foreign-based are not ready to represent Ghana due to ‘Juju’ at the camp of the national team.
Some football administrators including Alhaji Grusah were all pushed to convince the 22-year old center-back who was born in Kumasi to represent the Ghana national team.
According to the CEO of King Faisal, the player has warned him not to interfere in his matters concerning his call up to the Ghana national team.
Alhaji revealed the secret during an interview with Atinka FM.
“The Black Stars Chairman tasked me to speak to Salisu because he’s from Kumasi. I called his dad & he linked me to him. Salisu flatly told me to stay away from his matter. He questioned me that if he was my son, would I advise him to play for Ghana?”
“I’m not the only person who has spoken to him. I know CK Akunnor went to him, he said he won’t play. Even the GFA President said he found where his mother stays and went to her. I don’t know what happened but the Salisu is not ready to play”
“He was angry when I called him. He insisted several times that I should stay out of the matter because he doesn’t want to have any problem with me. I’m not going to involve myself in his matter again. I don’t know the problem he has with the GFA but I will not call him again”
