Ghana U17 not good enough - Kojo Addae Mensah

Kojo Addae Mensah, Managing Director of DataBank Group has given a scathing review of the Ghana Under-17 team stating that there are too many frailties in the team.

According to the financial guru who is also a staunch football enthusiast, the touting of the team as not impervious is a fallacy because there are several flaws in their play.

Speaking on ‘Kojo’s Corner’, a segment on Friday’s edition of Happy FM’s Anopa Bosuo Sports, Addae Mensah indicated that the team should not be overly praised because there are several loop holes in the team which needs mending.

“I have heard scores of people heaping praises on the national Under-17 team but I think there is so much to be done on this team. There are a lot of gaps in the defense and and several faulty passes too. Some of their tackles are too crunching and dangerous and if we go and play like this at the world cup, we would get punished when we meet countries like Spain and Germany.” Mr. Addae Mensah cautioned.

The Black Starlets play their counterparts from Guinea in the last group game of the Africa Under-17 Championship.
