Yahaya Mohammed preaches unity ahead of 2013 Nations Cup

Posted On Monday, 7th January 2013

Yahaya Mohammed wants unity to prevail in the Black Stars camp

Yahaya Mohammed has urged local fans to rally behind the Black Stars ahead of the start of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.

The Ghanaians have begun their pre-Nations camping activities in Dubai where they are billed to play North African giants Tunisia and Egypt in a friendly

The preparations of the team have been clouded by commentaries that have greeted Andre Ayew’s axing from the team, with just days for the start of the competition.

The 22-year-old failed to meet Saturday’s deadline for players to report to their pre-Nations Cup base, prompting the Ghana trainer to axe him from his team.

Opinions have been sharply divided on the turn of event but the Amidaus Professionals attacking midfielder is calling  for cool heads and wants local fans to put their support behind the team.

“The players need prayers and support. As Ghanaians that is what we can do to help them,” Mohammed said

“It’s not about whether this player should have been in or why this player was invited.

“At the end of the day, we’re all Ghanaians and so we should encourage them to achieve the ultimate for us.

“That for me is the most important thing. We need unity in the team. We should pray for the team irrespective which players were invited or not invited.

“They can’t achieve anything meaningful if we don’t support them. Prayers and support is the key to success.”

Ayew picked up a hamstring injury at Marseille’s training last week and could be out of action for up to three weeks minimum.

    22 yrs? Anyway the divisive factor was ousted so there would be unity

  2. Papa Nkrumah says:

    But why do you say Ayew would be out for “up to three weeks MINIMUM”? Or do you mean maximum? or perhaps he would have been unused even if he had been taken to the AFCON as he wouldn’t have recovered. The story is very confusing. Please edit properly.

    • Kay says:

      Dede pleaded to be there by Wednesday but Akwasi Appiah insisted on Tuesday. Is that fair considering the situation on the ground? The names will be submitted on the 01-09-13. He will be okay after a week – just before the tournament starts. He might not be available in the two friendlies though.
      Everybody knows Dede’s quality in Africa talk-less of Ghana, why do you need him to train before including him?. AA insisted on fit players but left John Mensah, Essien, Muntari, Jordan, Quincy, Nana asare, Warris, Acquah and now……

  3. Kay says:

    Bad grammar and terrible spellings from Yahaya. GSN should at least edited these terrible mistakes before making it a public consumption.

    “If we live them to their own faith” Does this make any sense to anybody?
