CK Akonnor Has Me In Mind - Yahaya Mohammed Speaks On Absence In Black Stars List

Aduana Stars forward, Yahaya Mohammed, believes Black Stars coach Charles Kwablan Akonnor has a plan in place to invite him to the Black Stars camp at a later date, which is why he is not included in the initial list of local players.

On Friday, February 12, 2021, CK Akonnor handed out call-ups to 32 home-based players to start camping ahead of next month’s Africa Nations Qualifying Cup against South Africa and Sao Tome.

The former Kotoko striker, responding to his omission from the squad, says he’s surprised to have missed out.

“I was surprised my name was not on the list. Consistency wise, I am always on the list of top scorers for the past seasons in the Ghana Premier League, I know the coach has a plan for me but if not I will be very disappointed. Maybe CK wants me to wait and assess other players before he hands me a call-up. They haven’t spoken to me though. ” he said in an interview
