As it is widely known that Ghana’s major source of confusion between players in camp is captaincy. The national team’s failure to win a major trophy since 1982 has been attributed to captaincy row by some section of football fans.
The issue has in recent days become the most discussed topic in the football circles as the current FA tries to find a remedy to the persisting problem that has become the major source of confusion in Black Stars camp.
Speaking with GhanaWeb, Former Asante Kotoko and Ghana midfielder, Yusif Chibsah advised the management team and the FA to do everything possible to make this persisting problem a thing of the past.
He added that the leader of the playing body should have the backing of the entire team and also suggested that the captain should be elected by the players.
“I think this captaincy issue should be managed. If we’ve been able to have a captain with less issues or no issues at all in the name of Stephen Appiah, it means it can be managed very well. I wouldn’t want to go back to what happened in 1992 and what’s happening with Andre and Asamoah but what I’m saying is the management team and the FA should be able to manage this thing very well”.
“We should have a procedure or guidelines in choosing our captaincy. We should make sure that he is the player’s choice. I believe that the players should vote for their leadership. In that way, we will have less issue. If the players vote, there wouldn’t be any division as we used to have with Asamoah Gyan group as people say and Andre’s group”, he added.
It is believed by most football fans that Ghana’s failure to win the AFCON in 1992 and to perform in last year’s AFCON in Egypt was due to captaincy row. A persisting problem the current FA will like to soon put to bed.
