AFCON 2019: Majeed Waris reveals why he was dropped by coach Kwesi Appiah

Strasbourg forward Abdul Majeed Waris has revealed that politics in the national team is one of the reasons why he did not make it to the final squad for AFCON 2019.

Waris who before the tournament had scored more goals than Jordan Ayew and Asamoah Gyan combined was surprisingly left out of Ghana’s final 23 man squad for the Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.

According to the 28-year-old,some people do not like his presence in the team and do not want to achieve something with him.

In an interview with Adom TV, he said: “Yeah for me I can say it is one of it [politics taking me out of the AFCON 2019 squad] and there are always a lot of effects because if you look at the midst of the Black Stars team, you will see that there are people who do not like you so even if you are not there, it is better.”

“There are people who don’t even want to see the team achieve something good with you, they always want it to be them, for me, it is not my philosophy.”
