Former Ghanaian international, Mohammed Gargo has fingered sports journalists in the country as one of the causes of the Black Stars’ title drought in the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).

Ghana have failed to lift the African Cup of nation since winning the competition in 1982 Libya.

Speaking on Akoma FM on why the country has failed to win the continental trophy for such a long time, Gargo included  journalist among the causes of the West African nation’s failure.

“Political interference, lack of consistency in player call-ups and sports journalists are the causes of the failure of the Black Stars to win a trophy”, the former Genoa man said.

The former RTU midfielder also advised Black Stars coach C K Akonnor to be tough in discharging his duties and not allow anyone to dictate for him.

“Coach CK Akonnor must be tough and should not countenance any nonsense from anyone.

“He needs experienced former stars to help him not showbiz people and musicians as we saw at the World Cup.

“CK Akonnor can competently handle the Black Stars job very well if he allows experienced former players to advice him”, Gargo said.
