European-born players of Ghanaian descent reluctant to play for Black Stars- Akonnor discloses

Ghana coach CK Akonnor has reveled that some European-born players of Ghanaian decent he met during his tour are still undecided about their international future.

Akonnor disclosed speaking to a number of young talents born abroad about pledging their allegiance to Ghana.

Alexander Djku (Strasbourg), Francis Amuzu (RSC Anderlecht), Enock Kwarteng (FC Bordeaux), Brian Brobbey (Ajax), Derrick Luckassen (RSC Anderlecht), Jeremie Doku (RSC Anderlecht) and Elisha Owusu (Gent) are targets he mentioned that the Ghana Football Association have been briefed about and assisting him to get them represent the country.

He further indicated it may take some time to get these players [he believes with them on board ‘the face of the game of our national team would change’] because they need some convincing and orientation about the Ghanaian culture.

“Those I spoke to want to play but are not familiar with our lifestyle here, they don’t know exactly what is going on, some of them come here and go. They don’t know anything about us and I think it’s important for us to encourage them to come here and see what is going on” he told the media
