Black Meteors (U-23) forward Ernest Nuamah has released a press statement to apologize for his outfit’s horrendous performance at the U-23 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) and as well address accusations of being unpatriotic.

Ghana suffered a shocking group stage exit at the U-23 AFCON, consequently missing out on a place at the 2024 Olympic Games to be held in Paris.

The team’s shocking exit has been blamed on the attitude of some of the players, with Ernest Nuamah being fingered amongst the players. Per reports, Ernest who enjoyed a stellar season with Nordjaelland was reluctant to even join the team for the competition.

In a statement, Nuamah downplayed all the reports, revealing he had health concerns after a long season with Nordsjaelland in Denmark.

The statement read: “Back to the base to grind, hustle & grow. The break have been full of unlocked dreams, lessons & growth on national duty.

“In accepting this growth path, I’ll take this opportunity to clear unfounded stories of choosing an uninvited All Star Game over Ghana & any one of us feeling bigger than our gifted U23 mates.

“I had issues over health concerns with my team after a long season & fatigue to join the U23 since the tournament was not on FIFA calendar explains why I had to leave after the 2nd game.

“No excuses but our performances as a group was below expectations but personally I could do better. As a group if we ever have the opportunity again, Ghana deserves better.

“I made some wrong decisions but I am grateful for this opportunity,” he added.
