    Sometimes I'm forced to think Anthony Annan is not a player for the big leagues. I stand to be corrected. Wishing him all the best.

    @Jimmy why must every mishap or unsuccess of a Black Person or Ghanaian in a predominantly white land has to be based on race. There are successful black and Asian players in Germany. Schalke had other midfielders and if the coach believed those are better than Annan so be it. We should rather pray he gets a good chance in his next club than blame it on Racism. Haba

    I think is a good decision than to stay at schalke.Ghana needs players who are playing week in week out to strengthen our midfield.
