News coming in indicates that the Black Satellites have been neglected in Benin.
The Ghana U-20 side at the start of the month travelled to Benin for the WAFU Zone B U-20 tournament.
According to renown journalist Alhassan Babaginda, no representative from the Ministry of Youth and Sports has visited the Black Satellites since they traveled to Benin.
“I can say with authority that, ever since the Satellites went to the tournament, no official from the Ministry of Youth and Sports has visited the team. The players are so dejected because their per diem and allowances have not been paid.
“Bigality, it would astonish you that, the chartered airforce plane they went with, reports from the Ghana airforce indicate that because they’ve not been paid they have decided not to fly the players back home after the tournament on Saturday…This is a big shame”, Babaginda angrily told Bigality on Hot 93.9FM
Ghana secured a place in the WAFU final and a place at the Africa Youth Championship to be staged in Mauritania next year after beating Niger 5-3 on penalties.
The Black Satellites will play neighbors Burkina Faso in the final of the WAFU tournament on Saturday afternoon.
