Former Accra Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko forward, Charles Asampong Taylor says Athletic Bilbao attacker, Inaki Williams is not good enough to save the Black Stars, claiming his gameplan can’t guarantee the West African side anything.
The ex-GPL star also stated that the Spanish football governing body would have convinced Inaki to represent them at the national level if they thought he was good enough.
“We always want to rely on these foreign-based Ghanaian players but the question is, how many of these players are starters in their respective clubs? We just like cheap things, and rejected goods seem to be our priority. How can our Black Stars be saved because we have Inaki Williams? Do we have better eyes than the Europeans? His gameplay cannot guarantee us any proper title. If the Spanish thought he was good enough, they would have convinced him and his brother to play for them and not Ghana” He told Akoma FM.
The 28-year-old, who was born in Bilbao to Ghanaian parents, played for Spain at Under-21 level and also made one appearance for the senior team in a friendly against Bosnia in 2016.
But after six years of being overlooked by the 2010 World champions, the forward did not want to waste his peak years waiting for his next international call-up. He switched his national allegiance to represent Ghana – and was featured at the last World Cup for the Black Stars.
