Ghana midfielder Mubarak Wakaso believes the two biggest political parties in the country- NPP and NDC-are partly to be blamed to the country's 38-year trophy drought.

The Black Stars have not won a continental title since 1982 when they lifted the Africa Cup of Nations for the fourth time.

Since then, Ghana have come close on three occasions burned and crushed on the cusp of lifting the title in 1992, 2010 and 2015.

Wakaso, 0ne of the longest members of the current squad, feels the rivalry between the two parties is militating against the team's title-winning chances.

He claims the national team does not get the get full 'moral' support from the two main political parties because of their own agendas.

Wakaso told Angel TV: ''I will speak the truth today. Do you know our problem about the game?

''Maybe we know but we don’t want to say it. But I think politics ruins the Blacks Stars at times. When NDC is in power, NPP doesn’t want us to win and vice versa.''
