Former Ghana International George Alhassan has blamed foreign based players for the Black Stars low performance in African competitions.
The former national star said that the inclusion of too many foreign based players is the cause of Ghana’s failure to perform well when it comes to competitions in Africa.
He advised the GFA to reduce the number of foreign players invited for competitions based in Africa and involve more locally based players.
“I believe the dominance of the foreign based players in the Black Stars is the reason for their consistently low performances on the African stage. Why don’t we choose only two or three foreign based players to join the team for AFCON qualifiers and then invite more to participate in the FIFA World Cup? I am saying this because the Ghanaian team is not used to foreign players.” he told Happy FM.
George Alhassan was part of the Ghana team that won the 1978 and 1982 Africa Cup of nations.
He also played for Accra Great Olympics, FC 105 in Gabon before moving to South Korea to play for Hyundai Horangi FC.
