Milo Worried Over Absentee Appiah

Black Stars Serbian manager Milovan Rajevac has expressed worry over skipper Stephen Appiah's unavailability for the team's international friendly with the Cranes of Uganda this Sunday.

Appiah was quoted to have said that he is addressing some family issues, hence his absence for the Stars' preparatory match exercise.

In an interview with coach Milo at the Gold Fields office in Accra yesterday, he noted via his interpreter that: "It's a big problem for us because he is a big player. We are talking with him, and we hope he returns to camp as soon as possible."

Responding to the U-turn for striker Junior Manuel Agogo, who is expected in the country today, coach Milo revealed that the decision for the U-turn was because Asamoah Gyan and Mathew Amoah are plagued with injuries.

Coach Milo gave the assurance of his side's readiness for the task ahead- Sunday's friendly and the two away World Cup qualifiers.
