Mixed feelings for Bristol over Adomah’s Ghana AFCON call-up

Posted On Sunday, 16th December 2012

Albert Adomah is set to make his first AFCON appearance

English side Bristol City have reflected on their key player Albert Adomah’s call-up by Ghana for the 2013 African Cup of Nations as bitter-sweet.

Coach Derek McInnes is delighted that the winger has the opportunity to display his talent to the world but his absence during the tournament could negatively affect their showing in the league.

The winger has been in impressive form in recent weeks, scoring the winning goal in last Saturday’s 3-2 against Sheffield Wednesday from a late free kick.

Adomah will join the Black Stars camp from January 4th until January 16th, while the tournament itself starts three days later.

If the Black Stars reach the final, Adomah could miss up to six weeks of domestic action, which Derek McInnes admitted would be a big loss.

“We’re delighted for Albert and it’s a great opportunity for him to showcase his talents,” The City boss McInnes said.

“I remember at a similar time last year we were pleased that he wasn’t involved from a selfish point of view, but it’s obviously a major event and for him to experience that can only be good for his development.

“He’s such an important player for us as everyone knows, so to have him missing for a few games will be a real shame.”

Bristol are just one spot above the relegation zone in the English Championship.

Adomah, who turned 24 last week, has made three appearances for the Black Stars including his debut last year in a 1-0 defeat to Brazil at Craven Cottage.

The Ghana squad will head to a training camp in United Arab Emirates and play friendlies against Tunisia and Egypt before the final 23 names are confirmed.
