Black Stars midfielder Mubarak Wakaso has said that the Ghana National team is full of politics and that has facilitated in the trophy less run for the team.

The Black Stars has gone without a major trophy since 1982 and the midfielder believes football politics is undermining their capabilities of winning a trophy.

"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"

According to him, anytime a new government assumes office, being it either NPP or NDC they try to use the Black Stars to fight each other politically which brings down the spirit of the team.

Wakaso has been an integral member of the Black Stars and was part of the squad that reach the finals in the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations.
