Gyan Backs Chris Hughton : Former Asante Kotoko , Brong Ahafo United and Black Stars player Ntow Gyan says the criticism against Black Stars head coach Chris Hughton over his non-selection of home-based players should cease because there is no single local player who merits a call-up.
The former Brighton and Holve Albion did not invite any Ghana Premier League player in his 25-man Ghana squad to face Angola on March 23rd and March 27th during Match-Day Three and Four respectively of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualification series.
Gyan , now a certified coach , believes Hughton’s brutal decision is justified because currently no local player can compete against any foreign-based player for any position at the Black Stars.
“Tell me which local player deserves a call-up right now? You will find none.” , Ntow Gyan told Kumasi-based Fox FM.
“The quality of players in the local league now is so low and they cannot compete against the foreign-based players and so the coach’s decision not call any home-based players is warranted” , Gyan who also played for Okwahu United and Real Tamale United added.
