Mubarak Wakaso hits back at coach Kwesi Appiah over Black Stars snub

Ghana midfielder Mubarak Wakaso insists he deserves to be in coach Kwasi Appiah’s 30-man squad for Ghana’s 2019 AFCON qualifier against Ethiopia and the two international friendlies with Mexico and the USA.

Coach Appiah overlooked Wakaso and some other regular players in a squad which has ten new faces.

Wakaso who joined Spanish side Granada in the second half of the season on loan feels he had enough match playing time to merit a call up.

“He has invited some players who are warming the bench in their team, but I have been enjoying consistent football at my club, yet I couldn’t get a call-up into the team,” Mubarak Wakaso told Silver FM in Kumasi.

“I understand he has called some players on why they were not invited into the team, but I haven’t received any phone call from Kwesi Appiah,”
“When I saw the list I wasn’t worried, because everybody has his own destiny
