Ghana's World Cup scout Otto Addo confident Black Stars will bounce back strongly

Ex Ghana forward Otto Addo believes the Black Stars can benefit immensely from its disastrous campaign at the 2014 World Cup once vital lessons are learnt.

The Black Stars crashed out of the tournament hosted by Brazil after the group stage without recording a single win.

Ghana’s campaign in Brazil was saddled with unprecedented player agitation over delayed payment of appearance fees and serious disciplinary issues.

A Presidential Commission has been set up to look into the fallouts of Ghana’s shameful exit from the tournament which was eventually won by Germany – Ghana’s group opponent.

But Addo who worked as one of the scouts for the Black Stars during the World Cup is confident the team will bounce back strongly from this major setback he described as problematic.

“There is always a second chance and the team can do well in future,” he told Radio Gold.

“It was very difficult to concentrate with all the problems.

“It was always difficult to concentrate on the next important match but hopefully things will change in future time.”

Ghana went into the World Cup full on confidence due to the depth of quality in the squad assembled by coach Kwesi Appiah.

The Black Stars however slumped spectacularly to their worse ever performance at the finals since their debut campaign in 2006 in Germany.

    Please read between the lines and you would understand what Otto Addo is saying! - "..... but hopefully things will change in future time.” Ask him to elaborate on that sentence and you would see the point he is making!
