Outspoken football administrator Alhaji Grusah has divulged that Southampton center-back Mohammed Salisu has no intention to represent the senior national team of Ghana, the Black Stars.
Mohammed Salisu has turned down several invitations from the Ghana Football Association (GFA) to represent the Black Stars.
Speaking on Atinka FM, Alhaji Grusah revealed that he was tasked by the Chairman of the Black Stars to speak to Salisu. However, Salisu informed him to stay away from the matter and questioned him if he will advise him to play for the Black Stars if he was his son.
“The Black Stars Chairman tasked me to speak to Salisu because he’s from Kumasi. I called his dad and he linked me to him. Salisu flatly told me to stay away from his matter. He questioned me that if he was my son, would I advise him to play for Ghana?,” Alhaji Grusah said on Atinka FM.
“I’m not the only person who has spoken to him. I know CK Akonnor went to him, he said he won’t play. Even the GFA President said he found where his mother stays and went to her. I don’t know what happened but the Salisu is not ready to play”
“He was angry when I called him. He insisted several times that I should stay out of the matter because he doesn’t want to have any problem with me. I’m not going to involve myself in his matter again. I don’t know the problem he has with the GFA but I will not call him again,” Alhaji Grusah added.
Salisu joined Southampton from Real Valladolid in the summer of the 2020/21 season for a fee reported to be around £ 10.9 million.
The 22-year old had a slow start to life at the English club but has now become an integral member of the team.
