Tema Youth Sporting Director Winfred Osei Parma has made a passionate appeal to fans to lay off Kwesi Appiah after he named his provisional 26-man squad for next yearâ€™s Africa Cup of Nations.
Th ex-Ghana defender announced his squad on Thursday which saw some few surprises.
In-form Amidaus Professionals midfielder Yahaya Mohammed made the cut while Jordan Ayew, Sulley Muntari and Samuel Inkoom were dropped for varied reasons.
Jordanâ€™s perceived temperament could have cost him a place in the team while Muntari was axed for his inability to recover in time from a knee injury.
Inkoomâ€™s lack of playing time at Dnipro accounted for his omission.
Jordanâ€™s exclusion especially has raised public uproar, but the Executive Committee member of the Ghana Football Association wants fans to measure their criticism of the squad.
â€œAt the end of the day, Â itâ€™s only 23 players that will make the squad and so I think what the coach needs is support not unwarranted criticisms,â€ Parma said
â€œLetâ€™s us support the players but in the end we want them to go out there and win the cup for the nation.
â€œI am satisfied with the kind of players that have been called-up. They all deserve to be in the team.
â€œAs far as Iâ€™m concerned there should be no qualms with it.â€
The team will begin a pre-tournament camping in early January.
