Assistant coach of premier league side Liberty Professionals, Felix Aboagye is advising Black Stars head coach Kwesi Appiah to ensure all differences between players are settled in the dressing room before matches are played.
The former Black Stars striker believes the team can win the ultimate in South Africa if team spirit among players is enhanced through good management from Kwesi Appiah.
Some players who participated in last year’s AFCON tournament jointly hosted by Gabon and Equatorial Guinea were alleged to have had some differences between them, most of which happened in the dressing room.
Felix Aboagye attributes the Black Stars’ inability to win that tournament to the bad blood between some of the players at the time.
“Coach Kwesi Appiah must manage his players from the dressing room. Whenever there is a problem in the dressing room, it tells on the field of play. If all rough edges are smoothened in the dressing room before a game starts, the peace, harmony and unity will help win that match.”
Felix Aboagye who was a guest on the JOY Sports Link on Saturday December 15 scored ten goals in his twenty-three appearances for the senior national team.
