Kwesi Nyantakyi explains Black Stars’ inactivity during the international break

Ghana Football Association president, Kwesi Nyantakyi, has explained the reasons behind Black Stars failure to play any friendly game during the international break.

Reports went viral that the West African giants arraigned for a friendly game during the last international break, but the country pulled out at the last hour.

However, a lot of football pundits were surprised that the four-time African champions didn’t play any friendly game.

“The notion that the Black Stars is a business unit and that we have to make profit anytime we play a game is wrong,” he told Zylofon FM. “We play friendly games because it gives the Coach the opportunity to access the team, the new players and old players.”

“When we play football games, it comes with huge cost and sometimes we don’t get anything from the game. Most of the times even when we make some money, we use it to finance the game. Last time, when we didn’t play any game, everybody was asking why we didn’t play any game.”

“The reason we did not play any game was because we did not have money and the teams that wanted to engage us in friendlies wanted us to pay for the game so that was the reason we did not play any game.
