Otto Addo Explains Joseph Paintsil Exclusion From Black Stars

Black Stars head coach, Otto Addo, says despite Joseph Paintsil’s great start to the 2022/23 season with his club, he did not make the Ghana squad because other players are doing better.

Paintsil was left out of Addo’s 29-man squad for the Brazil and Nicaragua friendly games, a decision which led to divided opinions from Ghanaians.

However, quizzed on the decision to drop the player despite making the squad during the previous international window, Addo revealed he only made a decision from what he had seen from his players.

“Joseph [Painstil] is doing very well. It would have been good for him to play the Japan and Chile games to show more of himself but he had problems and decided to leave the team,” he noted.

“Also, he wanted to start with his team [Genk], this one I can I understand. Surely I can just judge what I see.

“At the moment, I see others ahead of him but I think Joseph is a good player. He’s not with the squad now, it doesn’t mean everything is gone. Anything can still happen, we are monitoring all the players, their performances so the gate is not closed.”

Richarlison Scores Double As Ghana Lose 3-0 To Brazil In Friendly Match

Brazil defeated Ghana 3-0 on Friday night at the Stade Oceane, France in a pre-2022 FIFA World Cup friendly game.

The Selecao scored all three goals in the first half through a Richarlison double and the opener from Marquinhos.

It was a game of two halves as the South Americans totally dominated the first before substitutions gave the Black Stars an improved display in the second.

Marquinhos headed in the opener just nine minutes into the game from a brilliant Raphinha corner that Wollacott could not keep out.
