Black Stars players lack quality to win Nations Cup: Baba 'Armando' Adamu
By Patrick Akoto
Ex-Ghana international Baba ‘Armando’ Adamu has launched a blistering attack on the current crop of Black Stars players describing their quality as poor with the exception of Andre Ayew.
The Berekum Chelsea player claims the players lack the depth-in quality required to help the country to end a 31-year wait for an African crown.
The 33-year-old claims apart from Andre Ayew, none of the current generation of players have the knack to win any silverware for the West African country.
According to the controversial player, the legendary Abedi Pele, Abdul Razak, Nii Odartey Lamptey, Osei Kofi and himself are the only players who showed exceptional qualities during their playing days for the Black Stars.
He doubt the ability of the players to ever win the African Cup of Nations title which has remained elusive for the past 31-years.
“”Counting from the captain Asamoah Gyan to the last player in the team now, there is no gifted or quality player like those former greats I mentioned,” Adamu said
The current boys in no way can ever win us the trophy we are all praying for , because they are too ordinary,”
The shocking comment from the 33-year-old has already stirred up controversy with opinions divided.
Ghana can boast of top stars including Kwadwo Asamoah, Sulley Muntari, Christian Atsu, Asamoah Gyan, John Boye, Emmanuel Ftimpong and Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu but the offensive midfielder feels they are over-rated.
The ex-Asante Kotoko midfielder is not new in courting controversies.
He grabbed the headlines for the wrong reasons in the run up to the 2006 World Cup finals where he accused some officials of the Ghana federation of taking bribes from players for a place in the squad.
