Ghana's No. 1

Fiorentina star Alfred Duncan fires back at GFA president Kurt Okraku for 'tarnishing his image'

Published on: 20 January 2022

Fiorentina star, Alfred Joseph Duncan, has taken a subtle dig at the Ghana Football Association president, Kurt Okraku, for claiming he was not ready to play for the Black Stars. 

Duncan had earlier withdrawn from an invite to play Zimbabwe in a World Cup qualifier last November due to personal reasons, and excluded from the squad for AFCON 2021.

And in an interview with Asempa FM, the FA capo explained only players ready to play for Ghana were sent to AFCON.

"Alfred Duncan has had the opportunities to serve Ghana and he has not responded,” said Kurt Okraku.

“I don’t want to be picking on individual players but players who were ready to serve Ghana were selected to represent Ghana.”

However, Alfred Duncan responded with a tweet on Thursday afternoon, insisting his image is being tarnished and at the right time he will speak.

"People tarnishing my image in Ghana. I don’t want to start talking for Ghanaians to connect the dots so please let’s respect ourselves," wrote the former Inter Milan youth player.


Alfred Duncan has been in top form for Fiorentina this season, making 18 serie A appearances and has two assists to his credit.
