Black Stars coach Charles Akonnor has revealed that he has put a psychologist in place for the local players he has called to join the national team.

The former Kotoko coach called four local players in his 23 man squad for the AFCON 2021 qualifiers against Sudan but they will have to wait a while longer to play due to the Coronavirus outbreak.

Kwadwo Amoako of AshantiGold , Habib Mohammed of Kotoko, Yahaya Mohammed of Aduana Stars and Richard Atta of Hearts of Oak were the lucky ones.

Speaking to GFA communications, CK revealed his plans to get the local boys ready mentally.

“It is up to the locals [local players] honestly. We will give them a chance, we will encourage them. Even I had plans before we assembled the team. I have a psychologist to talk to them before they join the camp and so the challenge is up to them.”
