Black Stars head coach Otto Addo has revealed the reason for the omission of Genk’s attacker Joseph Painstil in his squad for the games against Brazil and Nicaragua.
According to the coach, the attacker should have stay and take part in Ghana’s game against Japan and Chile but decided to return to his club.
Paintsil is in a very good form at his club this season, scoring four goals so far.
Despite admitting the player is doing very well so far, the coach indicate he currently sees orders ahead of him in the pecking orders.
“[Joseph Paintsil] was very close. Joseph is doing well. It would have been good for him to play the Japan and Chile matches to show more of himself but he had some problems so he decided to leave the team and also he wanted to start with his team. At the moment, I see others ahead of him,” Otto Addo said in his presser.
Ghana will face Brazil on Friday at 6:30pm before playing Nicaragua on Monday in Spain.
